The Verizon-branded Motorola Xoom 4G LTE tablet will finally get updated to Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich starting June 4th. The WiFi variant received the upgrade much earlier, but this will still be Verizon Wireless’ first tablet to get the ICS update. Full change log posted below.
“The upgraded functionality includes speech-to-text technology and the ability to dismiss individual notifications by swiping a finger over an item. Users can also customize the new launch bar as well as create folders to access frequently used apps from the homepage. In addition to app management and functionality improvements, the upgrade comes with a built-in photo editor allowing customers to crop and rotate photos, remove red eyes, add effects and correct levels of images.”
