We've been getting word that a soak test for Verizon model of the Motorola Xoom is about to begin, and we certainly hope that it's Ice Cream Sandwich this time around. For those unfamiliar, a soak test means that there's an update that the software guys think is ready to go, and they want to put it out for a few brave testers before they roll it out for everyone. If all goes as planned, the update will follow soon after for the rest of us.
Now there is no clue in the e-mail that went out to potential participants, but we can't help but think it has to be Android 4.0 this time around. It's high time for the update, as this is the first Android tablet, and the Wifi versions (that came out months later) have all been updated. Motorola has said that we would see the Ice Cream Sandwich update for the Xoom 4G in the second quarter of this year, and a quick peek at the calendar says it's Q2. Now to hope everything goes well, and we see a smooth update for every one soon.
