An OTA update to Android 4.1.1 is rolling out to Xoom users, including some who aren't part of Motorola's feedback program.

The wait for Jelly Bean could be over for Google’s other Nexus device. Some owners of Motorola’s Xoom report having received OTA updates to Android 4.1.1, despite not being part of a Motorola feedback program that gives users early access to the software. There still hasn't been an official announcement from either Google or Motorola, so it’s possible that this is a limited rollout before the update gets pushed to the masses, but the news is encouraging nonetheless. After patiently waiting through OTA updates for the HSPA+ Galaxy Nexus and Nexus S, Xoom owners have to be glad to finally be joining the party.

Thanks, Lettershot!

Update: Motorola's Android 4.1 update is now official for Xoom Wi-Fi owners, and includes all the features you've come to expect from Google's latest OS but in a more Android 3.0 and 4.0 style interface with the menu buttons on the left and notifications on the right.
