Motorola gives you $100 in place of Jelly Bean


Motorola is offering a $100 rebate to people in the US who own a recent Motorola phone that will not be getting an upgrade to Android 'Jelly Bean' 4.1, and who want to buy a new device from the company that will get the upgrade.

The Google-owned manufacturer said in early September that most of the devices it has sold since 2011 will get the Jelly Bean upgrade, which brings new features such as Google Now to the smartphone and tablet OS. However, in the words of a Motorola blog post on Friday:

We have a lot of ground to cover though, so we won't be getting to all devices. For those of you who won’t be receiving Jelly Bean, we're offering a $100 rebate when you trade up to a select new Motorola smartphone.

This deal is only available to customers in the US, although Motorola said it intended to roll out the programme to other countries "over time".
