Verizon's adding the Amazon suite of applications along with Android 4.1 improvements
We've known an Android 4.1 update has been in the works for the Droid RAZR HD (and its beefcake "MAXX" cousin) -- that leaked out at the beginning of the month. Looks like things are cranking up, though, as the update documentation just went live. It's a hefty update -- about 276 megabytes -- but you'll get the early Jelly Bean features (such as Google Now) along with it.
Plus, Verizon's promising better voice and data connectivity, along with some other bugfixes. Also of note is that it's removed the preloaded Color application (which recently was bought by Apple), along with Verizon video, and it's added in the Amazon suite of apps, same as what we've seen on the Droid DNA.
No word on exactly when we can expect the update, so keep an eye out. Update: Verizon now says the update will start next week.
