Will Ice Cream Sandwich Come to Tablets?
We’ve long been under the impression that Ice Cream Sandwich will unify the smartphone and tablet branches of the Android operating system. Unfortunately we didn’t hear a single word about that at the recent Google | Samsung announcement of the Galaxy Nexus and Android 4.0.
Apparently Motorola isn’t keeping quiet any longer. In a post from a moderator on their support forums, “… Xoom will get ICS. I just don’t have any timing to share.”
As a reminder, Xoom was Motorola and Google’s “launch device” for tablets and Android 3.x Honeycomb.
So, there you have it. The Xoom will be getting Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich… it’s only a matter of time. Although it’s not from Google, we can assume that their tablet OS launch-partner wouldn’t be going against their designs with their tablet launch-device.
