The Android 4.0 update for the Motorola Xoom has started rolling out already. It looks like the first to get it are Wi-Fi-only Xooms in the USA. That makes sense, since the US-sold Xooms are ‘Google Experience Devices’, whereas Xooms sold elsewhere aren’t (then again, the first tablet to receive this update was the Asus Transformer Prime and that isn’t a Google Experience Device).
The update is about 81 MB in size and will bring your Xoom up to Android build version IML77. The update shall arrive over-the-air, and as such your tablet will notify you when it becomes available. As always with these things, the rollout may be staggered, meaning that it may take a few days (at least) for the update to reach your particular unit. Even more than that, we’re guessing, if you’re outside the US and/or you have a Xoom with mobile data connectivity (since in that case your carrier probably has to accept the update as well).
Still, it’s on its way starting today, and that can only be good news. By the way, Settings > About tablet > System updates is your friend in case you’re feeling lucky.
