It seems that the Motorola Xoom tablet has started to receive the Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich updates since yesterday, where Motorola did tease the update beforehand via e-mail to lucky Xoom owners, “Thanks for your patience as we’ve waited for this project to begin. Because we are dealing with a Google Experience Device (GED) we have less insight to timing than we would usually have. However, I’m happy to announce that we will start the update this evening. Because it was delayed a few days, we will also have additional time to test; we will let it run through the weekend.”
At point of publishing, it seems as though a few thousand select Xoom Wi-Fi owners will be on the receiving end of the update as part of an initial and private test. Assuming there are no grouses or complaints, Motorola intends to roll out Ice Cream Sandwich to the masses from late Thursday onwards, all the way through to the weekend (and beyond, perhaps?). Are you one of the select few hand-picked by Motorola to enjoy Ice Cream Sandwich for your Xoom Wi-Fi?
