Droid Xyboard Just Got Icy
The second iteration of Android tablets from Motorola, the Droid Xyboard, and the only tablets officially dubbed with the “Droid” branding haven’t really taken off as I suspect Motorola have wished. This may be due to the minimal spec upgrade from their original beast, the Motorola XOOM. Or it may be due to the tablet still being on Honeycomb, while others are being pushed with ICS. Well all that’s about to change…
Some lucky developers in the community have gotten a hold of a leak of the Android 4.0, Ice Cream Sandwich, version of the device. With Motorola stating that the upgrade to ICS, for these devices, will be rolling out in “early Q3 2012″, this should be looking to be a good sign.
These updates seemed to be real files pulled somehow from Motorola’s server, so expect nothing else that finesse. The Android version is 4.0.4 and the system version is: 12.11.26 for those of you who care. Be aware though that developers warn you, if you upgrade to ICS, you may be stuck on that particular leak for a while and will not be able to go back down to Honeycomb, not like you’d want to. Trust me.
