Update: It turns out the devices won’t be *receiving* Ice Cream Sandwich after 6 weeks. Motorola will instead test which devices can run ICS then inform customers which devices will receive the update. And for a second there we thought Motorola were going to be uber Awesome.
Good news for current and future Motorola XOOM and RAZR owners, as your devices
will be updated to Ice Cream Sandwich in around 6 weeks after Google push out the open source code for Ice Cream Sandwich. The quote from their Software Updates page states:
We are planning to upgrade DROID RAZR, Motorola RAZR, Motorola XOOM and DROID BIONIC by Motorola to Ice Cream Sandwich. We will provide more precise guidance on timing after post-public push of Ice Cream Sandwich by Google, as well as any possible additions to this list of devices.
The 6 week time frame came from a Tweet on the official Motorola Twitter account. They also stated that other devices will receive the Ice Cream Sandwich update, but will be announced after the code push — obviously to test which devices can handle Android 4.0.
So the Motorola XOOM is the first Android tablet in Australia to be confirmed as getting the Ice Cream Sandwich update. Awesome!
