Contrary to earlier reports, Motorola’s support site is today showing that the HD & M handsets will see an update to KitKat. This is a little surprising as both devices stopped receiving updates after Android 4.1 Jelly Bean rollout from early 2013 and had their support pages updated to indicate that they “will remain on Android 4.1”.
It’s unknown whether these updates will come to Australia, though Motorola’s Australian support site has also removed the “remain on Android 4.1” verbiage and replaced it with “Future plan coming soon”.
Waking up to this news this morning makes me feel a little guilty for my earlier Twitter snark:

… but only a little. There’s no denying that communication around software updates from Motorola has been especially poor this year.
We’ll check in with Motorola Australia and see if there’s any further news and update accordingly, but if you’ve held off buying a cheap RAZR M then today might be the day to pull that trigger!
Does this news revive your interest in Motorola’s flagships of yesteryear? Let us know in the comments.
