It seems that Motorola and Verizon are all set to bring out a major Jelly Bean v4.1 upgrade for Motorola XOOM 4G LTE. The tablet still operates on the primitive version of Android, Ice Cream Sandwich v4.0. This interesting Android tablet was released almost two years back.
Moto has been active in introducing Android software updates for its Droid devices. More specifically, Moto is focusing on rolling out the Android Jelly Bean v4.1 to its Droid devices and it has recently done so to the Motorola Droid Bionic. Motorola’s roll-outs are usually hassle-free, light and effective.
Some of Motorola’s Droid devices are still left to be switched to Android Jelly Bean v.4.1. Motorola ZOOM 4G LTE on Verizon is one of those left-out devices. Motorola has assured its customers of a Jelly Bean v4.1 update for the Motorola XOOM 4G LTE.
Droid-Life exposed an exclusive invite from Motorola to US carrier Verizon facilitating XOOM 4G LTE customers an opportunity to explore the combination of Android Jelly Bean v4.1 with the XOOM 4G LTE. The unveiling of soak test invite from Motorola directs to the fact that the update will be rolled out soon, probably the coming week.
Soak tests assure that the effectiveness of the software updates are satisfactory. It is conducted roughly seven days before the launch of an update. So, possibly, Motorola XOOM 4G LTE customers will be soon facilitated with an upgrade of their device to a more recent version of Android.
However, no official statement has been forwarded by either Verizon or Moto. Motorola has not confirmed anything over the specific Android version to which the XOOM 4G LTE is to be upgraded. But Google stated that neither Nexus S nor XOOM will be subjects to Android Jelly Bean v4.2 update, which highly indicates to v4.1 being a newer OS of the Veri-Moto’s XOOM 4G LTE.
