With testing complete, the onus of the update is returned to Motorola. Telstra is anticipating that the roll out should be complete by 17 December.

Despite being one of the last phones released this year, Motorola's Razr HD will be among the first to be upgraded from Ice Cream Sandwich to Jelly Bean. Australians with a Samsung Galaxy S3 or an HTC One X (or One XL) are still waiting for the Jelly Bean update to be approved by both the manufacturers and the Aussie telcos.

Waiting for updates has become one of the most frustrating aspects of owning an Android phone. The Jelly Bean update was released mid-year, and has since been superseded by version 4.2 of the platform. Despite these advancements, the latest figures from Google suggest that only 6 per cent of Android devices are running version 4.1 and over 50 per cent are on version 2.3 (Gingerbread), which was first released in 2010.
