Motorola Xoom Android 4.2 Update Not Available
Thursday, November 15th, 2012
Google’s Jean-Baptiste Queru has confirmed that the Motorola Xoom will not be getting the Android 4.2 update and will stay on version 4.1.2. The reason stated that the Motorola Xoom will not get the update is due to older hardware currently used in the Motorola Xoom already having speed issues reported with Android 4.1 on the devices.
The Motorola Xoom has had some of the best support by Google when it comes to updates to this point. Those owners of the very old device running a newer version of Android have been lucky to own it. On a side note the Xoom will likely get an unofficial update to Android 4.2 from the Android community so have no fear if you want it you will likely get it anyway.
Even with the Xoom running Android 4.1.2, an early version of Jelly Bean its still as far if not further ahead than most newer devices. Let us know how you feel about the Xoom not getting the update via comments below.
