Motorola Xoom to get Ice Cream Sandwich, no specific date in sight

Since the day Google’s Ice Cream Sandwich was announced, every manufacturer running Android on their devices is in the race to feature the latest OS build on their handhelds. As of now, Samsung is the only company who can officially claim to feature the latest and best Android OS on their handset, the Samsung Galaxy Nexus. After ICS was announced, Samsung’s competition has stepped up and said they are working to get the firmware on their devices. These companies include HTC, Motorola as well as Sony Ericsson. However, there is no official word on when this operating software would be featured on a tablet and which tablet would be the first to get ICS up and running on it.

According to a page on Motorola’s support forum, discussing if the Motorola Xoom would be the first tablet to receive Ice Cream Sandwich, forum manager, Matt spoken up. According to a post by Matt, he says, “I don't know anything about if it will be first or not -- have no insight into how other manufacturers do updates -- but Xoom will get ICS. I just don't have any timing to share.”

This is the first real confirmation that a manufacturer would feature Google’s Ice Cream Sandwich on their tablet. However, as the trusted source reveals, there is no official timing given. As of now we have to just wait and watch and hope that this OS comes to tablets sooner than later.

Do you think the Motorola Xoom will be the first tablet to feature ICS? Or will it be the Asus Transformer 2 that will beat them to the delicious dessert? Let us know your thoughts in the comments below.
