Verizon and Motorola have some news for the owners of Motorola XYBOARD tablet – both devices will be updated to Android 4.1 Jelly Bean. Yes, this is true! Motorola has announced the upcoming update on its special update page. According to the message from the company the twin DROID XYBOARD tablets, the 10.1-inch model and the 8.2-inch device, both branded Verizon will get Android 4.1 in the near future.
This is absolutely great surprise for owners of DROID XYBOARD tablets mainly because this is not the typical pattern for the updates of the devices. According to the message by Motorola, the Wi-Fi models will not get Android 4.1 Jelly Bean. The practice until now includes regular updates of the Wi-Fi tablets even faster than the other branded devices. In some cases even the Wi-Fi tablets get updates while the other devices never get it. This decision of Motorola and Verizon is certainly a surprise, because it is exactly the opposite of the usual practice. Will it be successful? We will know soon enough.
There are changes going on in Motorola. For example, the company has changed its main product page. In fact the news for the update of the Verizon DROID XYBOARD tablets was one of the first announcements made on the new page. Until recently, the message we could read on the page about the tablets was confirming that the devices will not be updated and instead they will continue working on Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich. Now we see the Wi-Fi tablets in the group of devices that will not get Jelly Bean, 4.1 version.
Reliable sources, like the AndroidPolice have announced that Verizon has confirmed its plans to release the updates to both devices in the near future. We still have no exact information about the date for the updates. The Android 4.1 Jelly Bean is promising to bring tons of new features for tablet users, including Google Now, a smashing camera, gesture typing and many more.
