The Motorola DROID Xyboard 10.1 tablet which broke cover in late 2011 is now getting the Android 4.1.2 update according to the owners of the device. The update is long overdue now, but not surprising considering Motorola’s history with tablet updates. The tablet was launched in partnership with Verizon in December 2011 and hasn’t made a lot of news since then. But this update should bring some joy among the users, if there are any left. The update changes the system version to 98.8.127. As users are shifting from Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich, there are a lot of changes on board, including Project Butter which brings a smoother UI and better functionality.
To jog your memory a bit, the tablet sports a 10.1 inch 1280×800 resolution display, a TI OMAP 1.2 GHz dual core chip, 1GB of RAM, 16/32GB of internal storage, a 5MP rear camera, a 1.3MP front camera and a 7,000 mAh battery to round off the hardware specs sheet. This is probably the last of the updates for the tablet as it’s running on the now unsupported TI OMAP chipset, which is the reason why Google decided to not rollout the KitKat update to the Samsung Galaxy Nexus.
