  1. Motorola has started rolling out Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich to Xoom tablet owners this week as part of a staggered release. The update is initially only being served up…

    I told one of my users about the update for her Xoom. She was quite upset with honeycomb, but she liked the features of android (smart user) so she went with the Xoom instead of an iPad. It sounds like she is finally loving her Xoom now that it has ICS. The only thing she kind of complained about was the changes made to the "contacts". I'm guessing she just needs to get used to the new interface.

    Yeah, ICS is a pretty damn big jump from HC. Looks over on XDA for the latest info.

    By the way, this is currently only for US-ROM Xooms. No other ROM has received the OTA update.
     
  5. No update here. Is this US only for now or worldwide rollout?

  8. Why no 4g xooms? B.S! Paid more for device and data plan. Why do we have to wait? Should be the other way around. Mototola sucks!

    The US wifi ROM is a Google Experience Device. Google pretty much handles the OTA rollouts.

    All other wifi ROMS, Motorola has some slight tweaks before they roll it out.

    All other ROMS that support GSM+ antenna, Motorola gives the ROM to the telco, and it's up to them when and how they roll it out.


    That being said, there's custom ICS ROMS supporting 3G/4G out right now. Check XDA.
     
  10. I know 6 people with Xoom's and all of us have not gotten our ICS updates. I am growing impatient. I want ICS!
     
  11. How about Xoom Family Edition? Still no update :(
