Yesterday night, Motorola XoomWiFi owners were treated to an over the air update. Once the device was done updating and completely scoured for new updates, most users might have been a little puzzled. It wasn’t until they opened the market that the update became prevalent and exciting. Absolutely packed with new features, user-interface, and more, the market is surely a step-up from the older market. Although some phones may have gotten this update a while back, the cool guys over at Droiddog put together a nice little video detailing what new market looks like on the Motorola Xoom WiFi.
Ice Cream Sandwich has also been boasting a new little implementation of “fragments”. As you can see in the picture above, this new feature allows the tablet and phone markets to be similar through a simple swiping motion. If you swipe one screen to the left on the phone, you will see the categories page. If you swipe one page to the left on a tablet, it will use half the page to display the categories.
As you can see, the new market is incredibly beautiful and the new user interface is impecable. Could this be a message from Google? Did Android’s market just become larger than the App store?
