Motorola Mobility has announced that it is rolling out the Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich update to a select few Motorola Xoom owners.
The Ice Cream Sandwich update has been deployed to a small number of users for testing, a Motorola spokeswoman said in a statement. Motorola Mobilty, based in Libertyville, Ill., has agreed to be acquired by Google.
We will confirm additional details when the upgrade becomes broadly available, she added. Both the Wi-Fi and 4G LTE versions of the Xoom are thought to be getting the update.
Motorola's decision to roll out the Ice Cream Sandwich follows a move by ASUS to update its Transformer Prime to the latest edition of Android. Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich was first announced at a joint Google-Samsung event in Hong Kong in October, and Google released the OS's source code about a month later.
The first device with ICS, the Samsung Galaxy Nexus, made its debut overseas Nov. 17, with the U.S. version on Verizon Wireless following suit Dec. 15.
