Ah, soak tests, don’t you just love being invited to some of those? Motorola has started to test upcoming software updates by carrying out a soak test. The installation process of the software is limited to just a tiny number of units, and even then, it is by invitation only. This is not due to a discriminatory process, but rather, Motorola most probably wants to limit the number of handsets which might actually end up bricked if things go awry. After all, if there happens to be issues with this particular update for DROID handsets, only a small number would “suffer”, so to speak. If you would like to have your smartphone take part in the test, you would have to be a member of the Motorola Feedback Network, and will have to make sure that everything concerning the test would remain confidential.
The models from Motorola that will undergo this soak test would be the Motorola DROID Ultra, Motorola DROID MAXX and the Motorola DROID Mini. We are not sure just yet as to when the test will be over, but Motorola could “soak” the trio with Android 4.4 KitKat, although there is also every chance that it could be something else entirely.
