Motorola Loses Xoom Branding And Court Case

When it comes to the top dog in the world of tablets, there is no doubt that Apple’s iPad had established itself as the market leader for the longest time already, although it has seen its fair share of challengers from the Android platform. Along the course of time, there were some flops that “participated” in the tablet arms race, among them include the BlackBerry PlayBook and the Motorola Xoom. […]


Nexus S and Motorola Xoom will be kept at Android 4.1.2

One of the highlights of owning an official Google Nexus device is the fact that you will be on the receiving end of Android updates a lot faster than Android owners who might be locked to a carrier, or Android owners of non-Nexus devices. That being said, it looks like it might be time for the Nexus S to retire as according to Google, it looks like both the Nexus […]


OLPCs hacked by Ethiopian kids on their own in 5 months

While I find it nigh impossible to believe that leaving a typewriter in the room with a bunch of monkeys would eventually see one of the Bard’s sonnets typed out (an experiment was run in the past to debunk such an idea), it is not too hard to see us humans are extremely intelligent compared to primates. For instance, when you leave OLPCs with a bunch of Ethiopian kids without […]

Upcoming Motorola Xoom soak test suggests that Android 4.1 Jelly Bean update is imminent

It wasn’t too long ago that the Motorola Xoom Android tablet received its Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich update and it looks like the Xoom tablet is set to receive the next major Android update – Android 4.1 Jelly Bean.

Verizon has kept good to their word, having released the Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich operating system update for the Motorola Xoom tablet.

According to reports online, it looks like the Motorola XOOM WiFi Android tablet will be receiving an update soon. Some testers have started receiving emails about a new update on the way.
