As a proud owner of a Motorola Xoom Wifi edition, I expected an Android update as soon as I heard about Android 4.1 and fortunately enough, only a few days after it was released, a notification popped up, letting me know I was ready to update. Android 4.1, or Jelly Bean, as it is commonly known, is a fantastic upgrade from ICS. While it is not a complete UI makeover like ICS was to Honeycomb, it does bring hundreds of improvements on an already polished operating system. Thanks to Project Butter, the OS feels absolutely lightning quick and has virtually no lag whatsoever. Does it fare well in today’s competitive mobile OS market? Let’s find out.
