Motorola Xoom Tablet Receives Ice Cream Sandwich 4.0.3 Update

Just a day after Google officially released the latest version of its Android Ice Cream Sandwich- version 4.0.3, an update has already hit the Motorola Xoom; through backdoor channels though.

According to an Engadget report, the update has already been installed on a Motorola Xoom WiFi only tablet belonging to a certain XDA developer.

With this, the Xoom has become the first tablet computer to be run on the latest version of Ice Cream Sandwich.

Earlier this year, Motorola Xoom became the first tablet device to be shipped with the Android Honeycomb OS when the tablet specific version of Android first entered the market.

The base version of the OS is currently compatible with just three devices, Samsung Galaxy Nexus, Motorola Nexus and Google Nexus S.

But being the first device to be running on a newly released OS platform has a price to pay as well. In this case, some of the most crucial features such as the camera are not going to work with the Xoom-Android 4.03 combo.

In addition, a green overlay also disrupts the usual display from time to time, according to the Engadget report.
