If you are after an Ice Cream Sandwich tablet you now have exactly two options: the ASUS Transformer Prime which got the update last week, or the Motorola XOOM Wi-Fi that just got ICS, according to Motorola.

Note that only the Wi-Fi version gets ICS.  The 3G/LTE versions are coming shortly —we are assuming— due to radio issues.

It is still impressive of ASUS/embarrassing for Google/MOT that ASUS beat the Android tablet reference design to ICS.  The press release is available below…

Motorola XOOM™ Wi-Fi Gets Even Sweeter with Ice Cream Sandwich

Motorola XOOM Wi-Fi owners, get ready to lick your fingers – your tablet device is the first of its kind to receive the upgrade to Android 4.0, Ice Cream Sandwich (ICS). As we’ve told you before, ICS brings a whole new look and feel to Android-based devices. We’re talking about an updated browser with faster rendering, a redesigned app launcher, richer resizable widgets, and more versatile imaging capabilities. Mix in unique features such as type with your voice capability and Data Manager to control your network data usage – and you have yourself quite the treat. In addition, this new Android version provides an updated “People” application that replaces contacts and integrates seamlessly with Google+ and other social networks, as well as a redesigned Gallery app with photo editor.

Starting today, the ICS upgrade will begin rolling out in phases over the course of a few weeks, so look for a notification on your device when it’s ready for download – and enjoy!
