The Motorola DROID Xyboard 10.1 began receiving its Android 4.0 update late last month, and now it looks like it's about time for its little brother to get its own taste of Ice Cream Sandwich. Verizon has updated the DROID Xyboard 8.2's support page with details on the device's ICS update, which is version number 12.11.31.MZ609 and will bring the Xyboard 8.2 up to Android 4.0.4. Included in the 299.2MB update are goodies like a direct access lock screen, an easy way to monitor data usage and improved network connectivity. The full changelog from Verizon is available at the bottom of this post.
While the support documents posted by Verizon today list the changes contained within the update as well as its size, one piece of information that it doesn't have is the start date of the rollout. However, the appearance of these docs suggests that it the update can't be too far out. If you've got a DROID Xyboard 8.2 and feel like doing some manual update checkin', you can do so by heading into Settings > About tablet > System updates. Just don't forget to give us a shout in the comments if you manage to find anything, k?
