We know that Motorola loves their projects, especially for high-end devices. It’s the best way it seems that the company has found to test updates in the real world, with devices in customer’s hands. That’s what looks to be happening with the WiFi-only Motorola XOOM, if the official word from the Forum denizen, Matt, is any indicator.
Here’s the official, and quite familiar, wordage from the Motorola Owners’ Forums Matt:

So, if you’ve got yourself the WiFi-only edition of the XOOM, it looks like you should be expecting a pretty significant update here soon. Will it be Ice Cream Sandwich? We can certainly hope.
