Photo of Verizon ICS update and testing schedule leaked

Photo of Verizon ICS update and testing schedule leaked
It has been almost a month since a Best Buy internal document detailed that an Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich update was coming down the pipe to several popular Verizon handsets. A Reddit user that works for Verizon has posted several confidential images detailing the Ice Cream Sandwich testing and update schedule.

While we'll include all of the images in case there is another update you're curious about, what the majority of us are the most interested in is the Gingerbread to Ice Cream Sandwich update. According to this document, the HTC Rezound will be in testing until May 7th with a release ETA of May 9th. The Motorola DROID RAZR and RAZR MAXX will also be in testing until the 17th, but their estimated release date is May 21st. The XOOM has completed testing but is on hold for "Technical Approval" and its release date is still listed as TBD.

The poster does note that once the update is released, Verizon has a 14 day windows to push the updates OTA, so if these schedules do turn out to be accurate, you may need to pull or wait for a user upload if you prefer to flash it as stock.

well that stinks. they are completely ignoring ICS for Bionic. more nightlies for me to play with and hopefully after the Razr update they can port over the code to make the video work.

I've heard (from blogs) that Motorola said the Bionic will get ICS. I'd like to have the Bionic and Razr I have be on the same version of Google OS.

Ah ... I see the Bionic scheduled May 5. There is more than one picture to look at. If you look at the whole set, you will see it.

Hey how about the update for Verizon Galaxy Nexus since both the GSM and freaking Sprint version already have it? Geeez.

I guess this leak screenshot is another fake. HTC Rezound is listed as of yesterday to receive ICS and still no update.
