Android 4.0 news: Verizon Motorola Xoom gets updated on June 4, T-Mobile Galaxy S II on June 11

Here’s some news that will be pretty good if you own either a Motorola Xoom tablet bought from Verizon, or a Samsung Galaxy S II purchased at T-Mobile. Both devices are set to start receiving updates to Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich in the next few days.

Verizon has announced that the Motorola Xoom will be getting its taste of Google’s latest mobile OS starting on June 4, which is this coming Monday. This will be the first Verizon tablet to receive the update. Although more details aren’t available yet, it’s safe to assume that the update will be pushed over-the-air.

Not so if your device of choice is a T-Mobile Samsung Galaxy S II, unfortunately. The update to ICS will be out for the Galaxy S II on June 11, but you’ll have to use Samsung’s desktop software, Kies, on a PC in order to download and install it.

Anyway, two more devices are now off the ‘not updated yet’ list, with regard to ICS. At this rate though, that list will still have plenty of phones and tablets on it by this time next year.
