it is possible to do with out a OTG cable you need to use fast boot. I updated my UK xoom with the us ICS seems to work fine just flash seems to throw a wobble on anything but stock browser and thats not 100% stable went back to honeycomb again now.
Can you list the steps to do it without the cable?

While there are a number of aesthetic updates to ICS, I think the majority of the changes are "under the hood". Honeycomb was considered by some to be a one-off version of the OS and some apps did not play well with it. ICS is a mainstream update to Android and I believe the framework beneath it will be adopted by most major developers.

I think the biggest difference is the upgrade on the phones (GB -> ICS). If only my DX would get it.
Agreed. But the good news for us with ICS hitting phones is that developers who are optimizing for ICS will create apps that automatically scale well to tablets. With android adoption rate so low compared to phones, this is the only way we're going to get a lot of good tablet apps.
But yeah, ICS brings to tablets a couple much-appreciated visual refinements, a speed boost, and that's about it.
