    Motorola xoom to get ice cream sandwich imminently Pocket Lint

    http://www.pocket-lint.com/news/4257...cream-sandwich

    The Motorola Xoom could be the first tablet to get updated to Google's soon to be released Ice Cream Sandwich operating system.

    According to Fudzilla, the Xoom will see the hybrid phone and tablet operating system pushed out as an update imminently.

    Ice Cream Sandwich is set to be announced tomorrow at a Google event in Hong Kong, where we should hopefully also see the arrival of the Galaxy Nexus, the first handset to run the operating system from Samsung.

    Fudzilla is also saying it can definitely confirm tablets like the Galaxy Tab 10.1 and Asus Transformer will be getting the Ice Cream Sandwich upgrade.

    We likely wont know more until Google announces things tomorrow but we expect given the hype surrounding it, that most companies will be pushing to get Ice Cream Sandwich onto their devices as soon as possible.

    It may also be that Ice Cream Sandwich devices make an appearance at Motorola's event planned this week, especially given that Google and the big M are such good friends now.

    thats good news. but if we dont get write access to the memory card, then its a complete fail, regardless of who is at fault, google, motorola, developers. And before someone mentions it, i have considered rooting.

    Don't sweat the small stuff. You guys with GED xooms are the ones getting this update. I predict another round of "where's my update" hell swamping the forum again as we wait on Motorola's painfully slow release cycle.

    I hate those threads. when the first update came out, i got mines 3 days after it was released. same with the second. after the first, i didnt even worry, i just waited three days and got it, for all the updates. But regardless of getting ICS, i still plan to buy a quad core later on (maybe).

    Galaxy's probably won't get it before the Xooms tho... are they even on 3.2 yet?? I say that because I'd imagine it'll take some time for Sammie to put TouchWiz over top for the tabs (unless this hybrid makes it quicker to do that... which will be interesting).

    in addition, i would think it will get interesting regarding rooting ICS (i'm guessing that it will be required and will take a bit to get figured out). i have prevented my XOOM fom taking the updates after basic 3.2, as i figured it would require it to be re-rooted all over again. i wonder if it will be required to have the intermediate upgrades to take the ICS upgrade.

    I hope there is an option to decline, because I dont think we will get write access to external1 sdcard as it is by design as a GED

    I like Honeycomb, and I dont want ICS

    Im excited for ICS because it means open source again which means all sorts of new badass ROM's coming down the pipe. Our devs and others will really make this tablet sing methinks

    My thoughts as well.
