Android 4.0, Ice Cream Sandwich Upgrade Information Leaks for Verizon Devices

New information has leaked regarding Verizon's progress with bringing Android 4.0, Ice Cream Sandwich to some of its smartphones and tablets.

The Android 4.0, Ice Cream Sandwich upgrade has yet to arrive to many of the popular devices in the U.S., but this new update list leak reveals that the carrier is testing ICS on smartphones such as the HTC Rezound, Motorola Razr MAXX and Motorola Razr.

The testing will be completed on the Rezound on May 7 and the on the two Razr devices on May 17.

The leak also listed the update status of some of Verizon's popular tablets including the XOOM 3G and XOOM 4G. Testing has been completed on both devices and they are awaiting approval, according to the report.

Other devices were mentioned in the report including the HTC Rhyme, Droid Bionic, LG Revolution and LG Spectrum, however, they were separated from the ICS list which means that the carrier is planning to release a different software upgrade for them that will correct some bugs and other issues.

Reddit leaked the document earlier this week.

The site previously reported some fake information regarding the upcoming Samsung Galaxy S3. Because the site is user run, so this new report has been questioned by some.

Samsung released a list this week for its devices that will receive ICS in the U.S.

Verizon was one of the carriers who made the cut with devices such as the Galaxy Tab 10.1 and the Galaxy Tab 7.7.

The carrier currently possesses the first device that was launched with Android 4.0, Ice Cream Sandwich pre-installed, the Samsung Galaxy Nexus.

Verizon had exclusive rights to the handset until Sprint acquired it earlier this month.

Android 4.0, Ice Cream Sandwich launched worldwide in November of last year on the Galaxy Nexus.
