Motorola confirms Ice Cream Sandwich for XOOM

Motorola confirms Ice Cream Sandwich for XOOM

Motorola has confirmed that their Honeycomb-powered Android tablet, the XOOM, will see Ice Cream Sandwich.  Without identifying a specific time frame or additional details, Matt (forums manager) does indicate that the company will issue Android 4.0 to the 10.-1inch tablet.  Considering the hardware hasn’t evolved too fast for Android tablets, there’s a good chance that a lower price point and newer OS could kick start some sales.

More appealing?

Would you consider picking up a Motorola XOOM if it had Ice Cream Sandwich?  Why or why not?

Thanks for the heads up, Antoids!

    Well, since I have a XOOM I am of course happy that ICS is coming to it. And at $300, I feel it was worth the money. But the screen is just awful compared to a Tab or iPad, so I can’t actually recommend anyone run out and buy one unless you’ll only be using it in low light.

    Aaaaaw yeah, can’t wait. I love using my Xoom and since I’m on Sprint and might have to wait a while for the Nexus, I would love ICS to mess around with till then.

    If its upgradeable to 4.0/ICS, does that make it certain it is upgradeable to further versions of 4.x?
