AT&T Motorola ATRIX HD Jelly Bean

Beginning Wednesday, AT&T’s Motorola ATRIX HD has officially joined the cluster of smartphones running on a Jelly Bean platform, with Samsung Galaxy Note® II, Samsung Galaxy® S III and HTC One™ X+.  This is following the official roll out of Android™ 4.1 system to all ATRIX HD gadgets, which initiated earlier this week.

The availability of this update means that all customers of AT&T having Motorola ATRIX HD handsets will now be able to update to the fastest and smoothest version of Android system, to date.

Update Features

Jelly Bean update introduces numbers of new features including Google Now, which gives users with a new Google search experience on Android. This feature also lets users generate essential real-time traffic notifications, nearby transportation systems, flight information, live sports scores, local restaurants and latest weather updates.

The new features incorporated in Android 4.1, Jelly Bean plus the Motorola ATRIX HD’s standing attributes hence, denote a substantial upgrade to the Android phones user experience.

Updates from the same application will now be combined with the updated notifications. Any notification may now also be expanded or collapsed by users. Viewing an entire image of an MMS, as well as full text of an SMS message is also possible.

Early Soak Test

Prior to this update roll out, a system soak test was done late last month, particularly for this handset model. Motorola had invited a few members of the Motorola Feedback Network, owning a Motorola ATRIX HD phone to participate in an early preview of a new software release. The invited handset owners will then provide feedback on the software testing upshot.

The manufacturer opted to limit the number of phones being evaluated at that time, so if ever any potential problems exist could easily be dealt with. Those who were invited in the soak test were purportedly required not to disclose the testing procedure and the software version installed on their devices.

A few days later, the roll out of an update is finally realized.

ATRIX HD users who wanted to get a Jelly Bean update on their phones just have to go to the Settings menu, About Phone, and finally, Software Updates, to check on the latest available updates. A Wi-Fi access is of course, necessary.
