Xoom gallery not updating

The tablet that introduced us to Android 3.0 what feels like so long ago. But apparently Motorola felt it necessary to build out Android 4.1.2 for the device. It’s even more surprising because the Xoom is no longer supported under AOSP.

I guess they need to do something to keep busy when the only thing they have developed in the past year is a handful of Droids for Verizon and the recently unveiled Moto X.

Until recently, I was the owner of a first-generation i Pad.

(To be replaced by version 2 soon.) I use a tablet to check emails while having breakfast on the kitchen table, to watch movies, to read news and books, to play with apps, to Skype/chat with friends, to check for Facebook updates, to play music on a mini Bluetooth speaker, and to take notes during meetings.

The back and sides of the device are a similar, machined metal (though Verizon's version is painted a matte black, which is a real fingerprint magnet), the corners are similarly curved, and the front is, of course, all screen.

That's not to say the Xoom isn't good looking -- it is -- but there isn't much original going on with the general industrial design that's at play here.

When it comes to getting real work done on-the-go, I tend to use a laptop.
