Delivery methods will vary by device. Whenever possible, upgrades are delivered over-the-air (OTA), however in some cases the size of the file needed to install the update will require the user to connect via Wi-Fi or connect the phone to a PC to install the update. Factors such as manufacturer-defined software and other device performance improvements result in each device requiring a separate update which will vary in timing.

The upgrade plan is under way with users of the Atrix 4G beginning yesterday. The Inspire 4G is expected to be next in line with an August update, according to GigaOM.
