Verizon’s Motorola XOOM To Receive Ice Cream Sandwich On June 4th

Looks like Verizon is on a roll here! A couple of days before the big red carrier started rolling out the Android 4.0.4 Ice Cream Sandwich update for the Galaxy Nexus. Today, the carrier has announced that it will start rolling out the Android 4.0.4 Ice Cream Sandwich update for the Motorola XOOM from June 4th.

The Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich update for the XOOM will bring with it many new features including performance and stability improvements, improved speech-to-text technology, face unlock, a new keyboard, a new app drawer, an in-built photo editor with basic editing functionalities and more.

Motorola had already released the Android 4.0.4 update for the XOOM, but it was only for the Wi-Fi edition of the tablet. The updates for the 4G LTE + Wi-Fi edition had to go through further testing from Verizon, which is the main reason for the delay of the update. The testing took so much of time that Google was able to roll-out Android 4.0.4 for the Wi-Fi edition of the XOOM, while the 4G LTE variant was still stuck with Honeycomb.
