Very very very disappointing move from Motorola, first they promised ics update and let the customers wait for several months, but when the time for update came, they simply gave the words.....ohhh no people There's no update for you.....go home n have a sleep....what a Professionaly oriented high ranked company...acting upon ethics and keeping it's promises....bravo Moto.... Motorola Atrix 4g is very capable and powerful device.. it is powered by 1giga hrtz Nividia tegra 2 processor with 1 gig ram...it can very easily and effectively run even the jelly bean...the problem is that the Motorola is just going to be more and more greedy...They want to make more and more money by paying their attention more to making and sellimg new devices...so they just wanted to shed these devices to decrease their burden....but i hope they know that they are also loosing their many of loyal customers with that.....shame on Youuuuuuu motorola....
its dual core devices, so this is lazy ness no part of motorola. they should be doing JB update already.
People should stop complaining. These devices are old. You are better off upgrading to a new phone.
Not without a fight guys...
First, lets all sign a petition to Google release ICS JB to atrix:
Second, lets do the samething to nvidia release the proper kernels, so CyanogenMOD and MIUI can make better firmwares, with the proper libs.
And Last, lets all complain complain and complain in the official motorola forums:
Power to the people.

As disappointing news as this may be, does your phone do any less than it did Yesterday? No. Will it stop working overnight because it's not updated? No. Will Gingerbread be supported for the next 12 months or more? Almost certainly.
Wow! Absolutely bonkers! I will never buy a Motorola again!
I thought they were worth something ... very disappointed!
Bought state of the art Atrix 4G and lapdock costing a fortune and now told 14 months later that my phone is on the scrapheap.I will NOT buy Motorola again.Very upset.
I have an Atrix. And I will never again buy motorola devices. My next phone will be a Xiaomi MI-2
now i'm cursing myself for not going for the galaxy s2 and getting stuck with a tegra2 device as a galaxy R
Abandoning a flagship phone?? Sounds like really bad business practice... the new devices looked promising, but seems you will be lucky to even get JellyBean on them. Better to give your money to their competitors. Motorola just sucks in the software department.
both the photon 4g and the atrix 4g are tegra2 devices
add it to the list of
galaxy s series
LG optimus 2X
galaxy R(yes no update available yet, the one that showed up is either a leak or just restricted to Lithuania or Luxembourg)
nnnnyuoi89, 29 Sep 2012Motorola will lose customers because of this. I had my Atrix 4G all these days waiting for th... moreYes but you need to understand that the atrix is old, first dual core device made, so probably now Google can't update this because of the chipset and features that Motorola put on their device. Nowadays Thayer won't happen as Google ownes Motorola
motorola allways been crap devices and service goolge lazy assholes to upgrade the atrix hope apple puts em in court again
Software updates on Android take too much work because of fragmentation in the SoC and graphics chips. Windows Phone 7 is super easy to update to WP7.5, you can even manual update with the cab files from Microsoft server. Since WP8 is running on new Windows NT kernel and multi cores, they won't be upgrade to WP8. It's great that WP8 will offer OTA and guaranteed 18 months of software updates.
Fapman, 29 Sep 2012Meanwhile iPhone 3GS users are updating to iOS 6...and then updating their Apple maps to iNokia maps...
After Google purchased Motorola I thought they were going to make all devices "Nexus-like" and they were going to get support for 18 months like they were promising users.
I know that Android 4.0 is a rewritten version (should be named with other name to indicate a major release but with backwards compatibility) but 4.0 have few users and Google should update these handsets to increase and encorage developers to update everything to 4.0+
