In September, Motorola announced it would issue a $100 rebate to any 2011 device that wouldn’t get upgraded to Android 4.1 Jelly Bean and on Wednesday, it made good on its promise with the full roster of smartphones that qualify. Anyone with an Admiral, Atrix 4G, Atrix 2, Cliq2, Droid X2, Droid 3, Electrify, Photon 4G, XPRT, Titanium and Triumph can hit up Motorola’s Trade Up website and claim $100 to put towards a device that can run Jelly Bean after you send your old device back to the carrier. As AndroidPolice notes, you’re essentially trading in your old phone and getting a $100 gift card after you buy the new device in full. Each carrier has its own set of procedures on how to claim a qualifying rebate, so don’t hesitate to read the fine print if you’re planning to take advantage of the offer.
