    It seems that folks with the Verizon LTE version of the Motorola XOOM are being left out in the cold for a while, as far as an update to Android 4.0 is concerned. A new update, version HLK75H, is rolling out "soon" but it is only an incremental update with some bug fixes, and not full blown Ice Cream Sandwich. This update includes only a couple of things: support for dual International Mobile Subscriber Identities (IMSI), and a bugfix for restoring data connectivity after exiting Airplane Mode.

    This seems a bit frustrating. We know that Ice Cream Sandwich will work on the device, since everyone with a WiFi version has been enjoying it for quite some time already. It seems that somehow Verizon and/or a combination of Verizon and Motorola are holding back the LTE version. Could it be a technical issue with the 4G LTE, or is it simply corporate bureaucracy at its finest? What do you guys think?
