Default Motorola Xoom gets updated to Android 4.0.4

The Motorola Xoom was the world’s first dual-core tablet with Android 3.0 (Honeycomb) and whilst it lasted a full year with very little revisions, it definitely needed one and Motorola realised this early and has begun pushing Android 4.0.4 (Ice-cream Sandwich) to the Xoom's WiFi models via an over-the-air update. The update comes three months after the 4.0.2 revision was released in January.

Ice-cream Sandwich, for those who have been living under a rock for the past six months is Google’s latest Android revision which really improves on functionality and appeal. The user-interface more refined and emphasises the ability to customise and organise user-space among the home screen by incorporating portals – which is Google’s fancy word for folders.

Specifically for the Xoom, this update update improves the camera and a few other minor features of the tablet since the last revision. The update from what we can understand allows quicker screen rotation, general responsiveness, as well as an improved auto-lock feature.

This is sure to bring some relevance to the Xoom and hopefully still makes the tablet more appealing for a cheaper purchase for those wanting an Ice-cream Sandwich tablet.
