Xoom Receives Official IML77 Ice Cream Sandwich Update
Just a few days ago, we wrote about how the IML77 update was already rolling out to select Motorola Xoom users who had opted in to the Motorola Feedback Network. After a week’s worth of observation, the update has now been cleared for public consumption!
