Motorola XOOM ICS update soak test may have begun

Motorola XOOM ICS update soak test may have begun
The Verizon Motorola XOOM was the very first tablet to get Android 3 Honeycomb. Sadly, that is still what runs on the device. However, rumor has it that an Ice Cream Sandwich update for the XOOM is right around the corner

Word comes from Motorola Feedback Members who have been invited to test a new software update for the Motorola XOOM. Whether this is Android 4.0 or not is still a mystery, but since the software is scheduled for a release in Q2, this could finally be it. Also, it has been over a month already since we had news about a leaked early version of the update. And by the way, those folks told Droid-Life that it didn't matter whether the XOOM had its LTE radio installed or not; the new software would still work.

So cross your fingers, Motorola XOOM owners. Your tablet might be getting a fresh dose of Ice Cream Sandwich pretty soon. We will let you know as soon as the official Android 4.0 update goes live.

Goodness, Xoom Wifi owners have enjoyed ICS for nearly 5 months and Verizon's LTE version is just now leaking? I don't think I could ever deal with Verizon and their awful update schedule, between this and the Galaxy Nexus to name a few, for more than a few months before I see the writing on the wall for my own device
