    Default Droid Maxx Future Android L Update

    Not sure if there has been any other discussion about this, but I'd seen that the X and G are slotted for an update to the next iteration of Android when that drops later this year. I spoke with a customer service rep at Moto today who implied (but didn't say outright) that we should expect Android L to make it to the Droid Maxx too. Here's the relevant excerpt from the conversation:

    Joe: OK thanks - so are you saying that it [Android L] will become available later this year, but just hasn't been announced for release yet? I know that the final product is still underdevelopment and that Motorola has committed to updating the G and X, I was just wondering if a similar commitment to the Droid Maxx is out there
    Joe: *under development (i.e. Google hasn't released it and published it to the AOSP yet)
    Arrianne: We are always looking into improving our devices through Android Software updates, as of now we cannot provide an exact date yet, but for the improvement of the Droid Maxx an update will be sent you for sure.
    Joe: Great, thanks for letting me know! Have a nice day

    IIRC, nothing has been officially stated for Android "L" updates to the Moto X and Moto G.

    But Punit Soni did pledge two years of support for the Moto X, 2013 DROIDs, and Moto G. I fully expect the DROID MINI, DROID ULTRA, and DROID MAXX to be updated to the Android "L" base.

    Motorola DROID Bionic (98.72.22.XT865.Verizon.en.US, Jelly Bean 4.1.2)
    Google Nexus 7 2012 (KTU84P, KitKat 4.4.4)

    The fact that the 2012 Droids received an update to KitKat recently close to the end of their two year windows is, I think, a hopeful sign that the 2013 Droids will see at least one more Android version update. I can't believe that closing the sale of the company to Lenovo will change that; I guess we will see.

    Not only a two-year support commitment, but if the L rollout will be anything like KitKat's was, we should see it on our Droids by year's end, or early next year, I hope, given how fast Moto and VZW handled updates early on (the first camera update, and KitKat).

    The only reason that went off the rails a little i think was because 4.4.2 was supposed to fix bugs in 4.4.0, then 4.4.3 was out when .2 was ready to roll, but was stricken with a major security hole.

    I saw the L review and I am willing to embrace the new "design language" lighter themes material design etc. .the one thing that I really disliked was the design change to the three main nav keys... They look over designed to my eye. Then I realized its not gonna affect me...my capacitive keys will not change..one more reason to keep MAXX
