Mysterious new software release being soak tested for the Motorola Xoom Wi-Fi in US

If you own a Motorola XOOM Wi-Fi, live in US and are currently enrolled in the Motorola Feedback Network, it looks like a new soak test is on its way, as per an email that just popped up in our inbox. No specifics were given, the email did make mention of “an early preview of a new software release.” While the update itself hasn’t hit, the curiosity definitely has, as we don’t have a clue as to what this one is all about. Android 4.0.4 or 4.0.5 is the first thing that comes to mind, especially considering the Xoom only got ICS about two months ago.

Rather than speculate, I’ll just go ahead and post the email and leave it up to your imagination.

    I have a Xoom Wifi and it has not been upgraded to ICS . Atleast in india ( by motorola .. custom Roms dont qualify as an update). As you are an indian site please do also care about legit indian users.
