Motorola is petitioning members of their Feedback Network to take part in a software upgrade test for the WiFi edition of their XOOM tablet, an event that all the more worth noting given its proximity to the Android 4.1 Jelly Bean update Google promised during the I/O keynote presentation. The Motorola XOOM was listed alongside the Samsung Galaxy Nexus and Nexus S as the first group of devices to receive the updated Android OS. With an delivery timeframe of July, there is reason to believe this may be the software upgrade Moto is currently seeking to test.
If this round of testing does indeed signal the beginning of the Jelly Bean update process for the XOOM it will fall in line as the second tablet to officially feature the latest version of Android, and the first to do so in a 10.1-inch form factor. This will presumably also make it the first device to feature a landscape orientation as the default presentation. Once the update is approved the process shouldn’t take too long. As a WiFi-only device there is no carrier partner to do any meddling.
