Nexus S and Xoom won’t get 4.2 update

Written by Peter Scott



End of the line, everybody off


Android 4.2 is rolling out to the Galaxy Nexus and Nexus 7, but there is some bad news for Android fundamentalists.

The Nexus S and Motorola Xoom will not receive the update. It is the end of the road for these obsolete devices. Of course, the community will probably keep working on custom ROMs, but Google won’t bother with any new updates for the devices.

It is somewhat understandable that Google chose to drop the Nexus S, after all it is based on 2010 tech and it is underpowered, but the Xoom could have done with an update and it definitely has the hardware to handle it.

However, the Xoom was never a good seller and Google probably did not want to waste time and money rolling out an update for a handful of users.
