Motorola testing Android 4.1 Jelly Bean update for Xoom Wi-Fi

Motorola has apparently been testing a Jelly Bean update with Xoom Wi-Fi users who previously signed up.

Google promised back at I/O that Android 4.1 would be coming to the Galaxy Nexus, Nexus S, and Motorola Xoom this month, but while we've seen Jelly Bean updates for both phones the Xoom has so far been left out. That could change soon, though, as Motorola has apparently been trialling an over-the-air Jelly Bean upgrade with Xoom Wi-Fi owners who previously signed up to test the software.

These tests of near-final software updates are common, but Android Central has acquired what it says is the changelog for the most recent one, seeming to confirm that it does indeed include Android 4.1.1. It's no guarantee of an availability date for the regular Xoom-owning masses, and there's no indication of a launch for the 3G or 4G models, but it certainly wouldn't surprise us to see a wider rollout soon.
