Ice Cream Sandwich officially comes to the Verizon Motorola DROID XYBOARD 8.2
Hello, Motorola DROID XYBOARD 8.2. We haven't heard from you in quite some time.

When both the Motorola DROID XYBOARD 8.2 and 10.1 were released by Verizon ten months ago, they came running Android Honeycomb. Even though that was good enough at that time, most newer tablets released since then came running Ice Cream Sandwich.

For whatever reason, only the larger DROID XYBOARD 10.1 received its update to ICS back in August, and left people wondering when the DROID XYBOARD 8.2 would receive the update.

We're now pleased to report that Ice Cream Sandwich has finally come to the Verizon Motorola DROID XYBOARD 8.2. Included in the 299MB update are features such as direct access lock screen, better multitasking, the ability to create folders, and data usage monitor. Also included are updated USB drivers for better PC file transfer support, updated corporate email client, faster web browsing, and improved network connectivity.

Chances are this may be the last update for the DROID XYBOARD series on Verizon, as Motorola is not expected to update them to Android Jelly Bean.
