Will the Motorola Xoom be the first tablet to run Ice Cream Sandwich?

Moto’s tablet may be the first to sink its teeth into the creamy goodness of Google’s latest OS

With Ice Cream Sandwich (Android 4.0), Google is hoping to unify the mobile and tablet versions of Android into a single recognisably consistent OS and – according to fudzilla – the Motorola Xoom may be the first tablet to receive the long-awaited update.

The news doesn’t come as too much of a surprise given that the big G is currently sealing a deal which will see them buying out Motorola for a cool US$12.5 billion, but it’s still a nice way to reward Xoom early adopters with a little something sweet.

Whether the update will be released with a rumoured Xoom 2 tablet is another matter entirely, but we’ll find out for sure this Wednesday when Motorola reveals all at their launch event.
