Motorola promised during its press event earlier this week that it will provide a $100 rebate to anyone who purchased a Motorola phone between 2011 and now that doesn’t receive an update to Android 4.1 Jelly Bean. Now, the phone maker has followed up on that promise by launching a website where those without Jelly Bean can sign up for a chance to earn that extra dough.
The page offers a sign-up list so that Motorola can alert you if and when an update is made available. If Motorola decides that it won’t push an update, it will then alert you that you can buy a new phone and receive $100 back off of the purchase. In other words, if Motorola decides to can the update for the DROID RAZR, you’ll be able to grab the new DROID RAZR M (which is currently running Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich but will receive Jelly Bean later) for free. The brand new device otherwise costs $99 with a new two-year Verizon Wireless contract.
The firm said that official details will be provided at a later date. The $100 will be awarded in the form of a gift card, carrier credit or “other cash equivalent at Motorola’s sole discretion.” Not bad Motorola, not bad at all.
