I believe the current one is coming from google/motorola, but that's the wifi only model.

I have the 4G model, and afaik verizon would be releasing it, because it has their reputation/name on it

I also know this is a 'GED' device, so google supports it

so who would it be that would deliver ICS?

because if it's verizon, I don't think the 4G guys are getting it this month, but if it's google/motorola, I assume it can be within a week or so...

Chances are, it has to pass through Verizon for rigorous testing before being delivered OTA to thousands of users.

It will come from Google. Verizon will sign off on it, but it will come from Google. There seems to be a misconception around here that only the WiFi Xoom is a Google Experience Device (GED). Not true - the 3G/4G Xoom is as well. All updates have come from Google.

That's what I originally thought, as well, but, I was told only the wifi version is a GED earlier today. It was my understanding that all US versions of the Xoom were GED. If so, then maybe there's hope we'll see it sooner rather than later. After all, they have to do a soak test, right?

All US versions of the Xoom are GEDs. If they weren't, Moto would have been able to use a custom kernel to enable full SD card access, like they did with Xooms in other countries. I'm not sure where the misinformation came from that only the WiFi Xoom is a GED. That's not the case.

That is what I originally thought until I was told different. Thank you for confirming that!

So it won't be long before us 4g guys get it too. Unless Verizon had to test it out before signing off on it...

Let's hope so. Although I'm now running team EOS nightlies and have to say I may just stick with this. It's quite amazing. I'll install the official release once it's out there but I'm likely going to keep this.
