Verizon LTE Xoom Getting An Update (HLK75H), But It’s Not Ice Cream Sandwich

All I gotta say is damn Motorola has been busy lately. In the past 4 weeks (maybe less) we have seen soak tests for the Motorola Atrix 4G, Motorola Photon 4G, Motorola Droid Razr/Maxx, and the Droid Bionic, now it looks like a soak test for the Motorola Xoom is coming or it might have already started since Verizon has posted the Software Update PDF on their support site already.

We are a little dissappointed that it is not Android 4.0, especially since the Wi-Fi Xoom already has Ice Cream Sandwich (I bet Verizon is holding that one up). According to the PDF it doesn’t look like there is to much to this update as far as changes go. Your tablet will now support dual International Mobile Subscriber Identities (IMSI), as well as a bugfix for restoring data connectivity after exiting Airplane Mode. I’m not a Xoom owner, but I think these changes could of waited for ICS, don’t you think?

So all you Verizon Xoom owners will have to wait a bit longer to get a taste of Ice Cream Sandwich, I know it’s been long enough but as soon as we hear anything about the ICS update we let you know, as we always do. Anybody excited about this update? Hit up the comments and let us know.

    This update is useless. Verizon delayed my Droid 2 update to Gingerbread for about 9 months, so I don’t even know why I’m surprised that their PR department would allow them to tease 4G xoom owners like this.

    I just upgraded my LTE to Ice cream sandwich. It takes some work, but man its sweet. This will get you started. Yes you need to be a little nerdy to make this work, but its not to hard.
