Verizon roadmap leak reveals ICS updates in May

Users of select Android phones on Verizon will soon be receiving an update to Google's latest Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich platform. A screenshot of what's purported to be a Verizon roadmap has leaked, revealing the schedule for the carrier's upcoming software updates, which will be heading first to the HTC Rezound followed by the Motorola RAZR, RAZR MAXX, and the Xoom.

According to the four-page Verizon document that first leaked on Reddit, the Ice Cream Sandwich update will first start rolling out to the HTC Rezound on May 9. Testing for the device finishes up on May 7 with the over-the-air update estimated to be ready two days later. The ICS update will then be rolled out to the Motorola RAZR and RAZR MAXX on May 21, which both finish their testing on May 17.

Testing for Motorola Xoom 3G and 4G have already been completed on April 19, but the ICS update roll-out is still to be determined for both tablets. No other devices appear to be slated for the ICS update at this moment. The update will arrive around the same time when new devices, including the new Motorola DROID RAZR HD and the HTC DROID Incredible 4G are expected to launch with ICS on board.
