Motorola XOOM Wi-Fi Edition Tastes Android 4.1 Jelly Bean

After pushing Jelly Bean to AOSP, and releasing the OTA updates for the Galaxy Nexus and the Nexus S, Google has started rolling out the update for the first ever ‘true’ Android tablet, the Motorola XOOM. Before Verizon owners of the XOOM, if any, get excited please note that the update is only for the Wi-Fi variant of the tablet.

Apart from the Nexus 7, the Motorola XOOM is now the only tablet that runs on Jelly Bean. The new version of Android should bring with it a nice performance boost, all thanks to ‘Project Butter’. Other notable changes in Jelly Bean include an enhanced keyboard with next-word¬†prediction, a new search experience, Google Now, some UI tweaks, improved notification bar with the ability to expand them, updated camera and gallery app with ‘film-roll’, off-line¬†voice typing and much more.

Google has already start rolling out the update since late-Wednesday/early-Thursday, so chances are the OTA update should already be available for your XOOM. If not, sit tight and keep pressing that ‘Check for update’ option under ‘About Device’.
