Motorola Xoom could be first tablet to get Ice Cream Sandwich

Early adopters of Android Honeycomb, particularly those who went for the Motorola Xoom could well be getting Ice Cream Sandwich first as reports have suggested that the hybrid OS will be heading there to begin with

The Motorola Xoom could well be the first tablet to get Ice Cream Sandwich, Android's upcoming 'hybrid' OS which will run on both tablets and smartphones.

These reports begin to make more sense when you think that firstly Google has just bought Motorola and secondly the Xoom, being one of the first to adopt Honeycomb, runs a completely vanilla incarnation of the OS, making it easier to upgrade than other tablets which will need to have UI's made first.

Fudzilla, the source of the rumour, however states very clearly that this is simply a stab in the dark after hearing on numerous occasions that this would be the case,

Motorola Xoom Features:

Despite being highly priced at the beginning of its life it still manages to pack a punch with a dual-core Tegra 2 processor and 1GB RAM to make sure it can easily handle multitasking and heavy app usage.

With a solid metal back it looks just as premium as Apple's offerings and with a 5MP snapper on the back it also has a better camera than the iPad 2, so with Ice Cream Sandwich on top of that the OS has the potential to breath new life into the tablet.

What do you think, will the Motorola Xoom be the first tablet to get Ice Cream Sandwich or will we see a Xoom 2 on the way? Let us know what you think in the comments box below...
