Verizon software schedule leaked, lists coming ICS updates
If you’re rocking an HTC Rezound, Droid Razr, Droid Razr Maxx, or a 3G/4G Motorola Xoom, today is your lucky day. A Verizon software upgrade schedule, shown above, has been leaked, and the juiciest of the information is listed at the top. According to the schedule, the Rezound, Droid Razr, and Razr Maxx are all getting some Android 4.0 love next month, with the Xoom’s upgrade date to be determined. More specifically, the Rezound is scheduled (if the information is viable, that is) for a May 9th update, and the Razr/Maxx are scheduled for the 23rd of the month.
While this is exciting, the dates are based on successful testing for each device, so they may change if major bugs are found with the OTAs. The Rezound’s soak testing is set to end on May 7th, and the Razr tests on the 17th. Hopefully all goes well, so owners of these respective devices can get their hands on some ICS.
If you don’t have one of the aforementioned Androids, fret not. There are a few others (listed below) that have updates in testing, although it’s not specified if the updates are to Ice Cream Sandwich.
- HTC Thunderbolt- update in testing, OTA scheduled for May 10th
- Droid Bionic- update in testing, OTA scheduled for May 3rd
- Xperia Play- update in testing, OTA scheduled for April 30th
- Galaxy Tab 10.1- update in testing, OTA scheduled for May 3rd
- LG Revolution- update in testing, OTA scheduled for May 16th
With any luck, we’ll see some of these updates being rolled out over the next few weeks. I’d be willing to bet that at least one of them gets pulled because of bugs, but we can’t all be perfect. More on this as it develops.
So did you see your device on the list? Anyone excited to finally get some ICS? Drop a comment below!
