Jelly Bean is on its way to the Verizon Motorola XOOM 4G LTE, as Motorola is currently in the process of sending out soak test invites to members part of Motorola’s feedback program. These soak tests don’t usually take a lot of time, so it shouldn’t be long before the update is publicly available.
Something to keep in mind is that this new update probably isn’t going to be Android 4.2, as Google itself has said in the past that the Motorola XOOM will not support that higher version of Jelly Bean. That said, we can expect to see some Android 4.1.2 action. Of course, that’s not to say Android 4.2 and beyond won’t be unofficially supported by developers.
It’s really exciting that this tablet is getting Jelly Bean. The Xoom is great device, and it’ll no doubt get a whole lot better with the addition of Project Butter and Google Now when Jelly Bean arrives. Here’s the invitation that Droid-Life received from a tipster:
