Motorola Xoom WiFi Owners In the U.S. Getting Android 4.1 Jelly Bean

We knew that Motorola was working to bring the latest Google mobile platform to the Xoom because they confirmed it and now the tablet which was regarded by many as Google’s first Nexus tablet — even though it really wasn’t — is getting its Jelly Bean treat.

One word of note right at the beginning: only the WiFi version is getting it at the moment and only if you are in the U.S. Among the features to look out for are expandable, actionable notifications so you can take action directly from the alert, seamless viewing and sharing of photos with instant view and swipe away to delete, smarter keyboard for more accurate typing and more relevant suggestions, enhanced text-to-speech capabilities that work even without a data connection, “Gesture Mode” for blind users to navigate using touch and swipe in combination with speech output; also supports external Braille input and output devices via USB and Bluetooth, and enhanced search capabilities via voice and with new Knowledge Graph to make finding the right result easier.
