Best Buy says ICS for the RAZR delayed, Rezound still on for Friday
Droid-Life got ahold of an internal employee memo Best Buy sent out yesterday, updating employees on the status of Ice Cream Sandwich updates for some of Verizon’s most popular phones. First, Best Buy told employees what we already reported to you – that the updates headed to the Droid RAZR and RAZR MAXX aren’t going to be ICS, they will be bug fixes.

We’re not sure that translates as ICS being “delayed”; there was never anything but speculation that today’s soak test for RAZR devices would be Android 4.0, so Best Buy may have simply jumped the gun with their previous announcement.

The Best Buy had also reported that the HTC Rezound was scheduled for its ice cream social this Friday, and according to the leaked memo that date is still on. We’ve seen polished release candidates get leaked so it certainly isn’t beyond the pale to think that Rezound owners could get lucky come Friday, but considering the quality of Best Buy’s sources for the RAZR we don’t advise you hold your breath.

But crossing your finders couldn’t hurt…

sure, you bet. i'll also post a root guide in case you need it. also you'll want to get something like utorrent because the guide has a torrent file you have to use. i'm also just going to tell you before hand it takes a couple of hours for it to settle since it's such a massive update with a new kernel and bootloader and all so expect quite a few crashes in that time but it will smooth out and you will love it. this is a pretty great upgrade. don't forget to get the Chrome Beta from the Market! ;)

no i want the real one tho

and since you seem like a smart guy, how will the android buttons work, since there's 4 for android 2.3, but 3 for ICS?

will it be build to use all 3? i find the search button just about useless anyways, but will that be gone after the update?

you just use the hardware keys. there's no virtual function keys. a long press of the home key brings up the multitasking menu and the search and menu keys retain their functionality which i think is better.

Oh, i would have thought that the menu would be the multitasking, and back and home stay the same, and search would just be extra

And history repeats itself. I'm still waiting for my Galaxy Nexus 4.0.5 update. Wasn't the biggest draw about the Galaxy Nexus was being AHEAD of other phones when it comes to software updates?!? lol oh well, April is here and hopefully sooner or later we will all get our much needed update.

No matter how much that I want this to be true, I have to call B.S. on this. Also I Need to call B.S. on the explosions in the commercial and in star wars. Those people would have needed MRIs for soft tissue damage.
