File this one under the “obvious” tab. Reports are out that Motorola’s XOOM will be the first tablet to┬áreceive┬áIce Cream Sandwich, Google’s next update to their Android operating system. There is no definitive ETA on this update, since ICS itself will not be announced until tomorrow, but this seems to be a pretty safe bet.

You could attribute this to Google’s acquisition of Motorola, or you could remember that Android 3.0 Honeycomb was developed on the XOOM as their flagship tablet. It only seems logical that Google would use the XOOM for their next operating system that involved any kind of tablet, which ICS is supposed to do. Some XOOM users are just getting theirs back, newly upgraded with 4G LTE on board, how nice would it be if you could upgrade to ICS pretty soon?
