Xoom scheduled to receive ICS...Family Edition as well?

2011-10-25, 0:45 AM

Motorola has announced that the Xoom is scheduled to be updated to Android 4.0 ICS. 

supportforums.motorola.com/community/manager/softwareupgrades

Can anyone at Motorola please confirm that this includes the Xoom Family Edition?

I sure hope so.  Thanks 

Solved! See the solution

Just confirmed with Motorola that the Xoom FE will receive the Ice Cream Sandwich update!  Great news for all of us Xoom FE owners!

"...Ice Cream Sandwich upgrade is for all the Motorla XOOM tablet versions. This includes the Motorola XOOM Family Edition."

If that's true, and they can get a 3.2 update for the Xoom FE out soon, Motorola just became my favorite mobile device vendor.

This tablet is awesome.  The Xoom FE and the Samsung 10.1 are the first real industry contenders to the iPad.

Between my Xoom FE and my Atrix 4G I don't miss my iPod, iPhone, or iPad at all.  In fact, when I do use them I find them almost archaic.  Pretty, but archaic.

One thing that could use major improvement from Motorola is the interface to the PC.  Apple has an edge with iTunes making it easy to move media around.  I'm ok with simple drag and drop copying but a great app like iTunes would really help market penetration for the lay person.  The moto software out there like the Media Manager etc. all feel kind of kludgy.

@Mark

I had e-mailed support when Motorola announced that the Xoom would receive ICS yesterday.  I asked them if this included the Family Edition and they confirmed it did with me.  I can forward you the e-mail if you would like?

@hildebrant45

You meant to say "I had e-mailed support when Motorola announced yesterday that Xoom would receive ICS." correct? No device recived ICS yet as there aren't any ICS devices on the market yet. Just wanted to clarify for others who might read it as I did the first time.

That is correct.  Meaning they announced the news yesterday.

So is what support told me true?

I'm afraid that was mis-information at this time and my post here applies.

Locking thread as we have quite a few duplicates.
