Motorola Xoom Wi-Fi Getting Another Soak Test

Well look at what just showed up. Looks like owners of the Motorola Xoom Wi-Fi are in for another soak test for “an early preview of a new software release,” which I can only assume is an update from the current Android 4.0.3 to maybe 4.0.4 or 4.0.5. Not sure what else it could be. It was only in January that the Xoom was updated to Ice Cream Sandwich.

Below is the email that was sent out to Xoom owners who are members of the Motorola Feedback Network. This email is pretty much their standard boilerplate message that goes out before a soak test starts.

It’s updates like this that puts a check in the “pros” column of getting a pure Google Experience device. Anyone else get the email?

    That’s great, but when do the 3G/4G owners get some ICS?

  • Great… wifi people already have ICS and now they’re getting a maintenance upgrade and us poor scrubs on Verizon are still waiting for base ICS.  [sigh]
