Now that it’s owned by Google, Motorola Mobility is supposed to be a model for timely upgrades to users’ Android software. But the company got off to a rocky start this year when it reneged on plans to upgrade a few of its phones from Android 2.3 Gingerbread to Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich. But at least there’s a consolation prize: Motorola phone users who’ve been left behind can get a $100 trade-in credit for a new phone that can or will run Android 4.1 Jelly Bean.
