    It looks like we may have an ICS update schedule for a few Verizon devices, if these included leaked pics are real. This pic seems to indicate that the ICS update schedule for three VZW devices including the Rezound, the RAZR/MAXX and the Xoom. Here's the breakdown:

    Thanks for the tip, emwhite81!

    Crank, I can't see that. Maybe they all will get 4.0.4 around the same time.

    I'll believe it when I get it. You can't say early 2012 though if its almost may and still nothing. This phone was a real sham what with the awful battery and lack of updates.

    This is actually getting really annoying. Everytime a "release schedule" leaks, they fail to mention the Bionic. EVERY SINGLE TIME.

    As Motorola still advertises the following on the Bionic site:

    "ANDROID 4.0 (ICS) UPGRADEABLE: WE ALL SCREAM! Ice cream is cool. Ice Cream Sandwich is HOT. Needless to say, DROID RAZR is Ice Cream Sandwich (Android 4.0) upgradeable. You can find all the latest software upgrade news in our Motorola Support Forums"

    I'm starting to think it's time they deliver, or us Bionic users really should consider a class-action lawsuit. They pulled the same crap with the OG Droid - advertised it as "Flash capable" when Flash never came along until the device was well on its way to being obsolete.

    And for this family of devices (Droid Bionic/Droid RAZR series/Droid 4) there is absolutely NO reason from a technical standpoint that they all cannot be released around the same time. These devices SHOULD be able to essentially work with the same ROM, perhaps with minor tweaking (especially for the Droid 4, to support the hard keyboard).

    Aside from that, these are the same basic device in a different shell.

    At this rate, we'll never see ICS for the Thunderbolt. No ROMS (functional ones), no leaks, nothing. I bet by the time that the update for the TB gets leaked, it'll be time for a new upgrade. Why is this taking so long? The longer it takes for the Bionic to get it, the longer we have to wait!! BS!!!!!

    Thats what they want, they want to drag out the older phone updates so it forces the people with the obsolete phones to upgrade to new ones if they want the most recent software.

    Typically we're able to circumvent this silliness by having a developer create a ROM with the current Google OS for our phone. But the Thunderbolt is such a POS that you CAN'T make a rom, something about radios, idk. All I know is I'm sick of Sense, my phone is a bulky as all hell (without the extended batt on it), I could barely see my phoen in the sun bc the resolution sux, and the devs dropped support like a hot potato once the Nexus came around. I'm going to have to be patient, I know. Serenity now!!

    Reading into this further, it seems that it is simply implying that the ICS soak test for the RAZR will be occuring during the week of April 24th. It starts on the 19th.

    It's very possible that the Bionic may have a soak test that begins a week or two after the RAZR's (to avoid having too many soak tests at one time) and thus doesn't fall during this particular week.

    The chart for the week of May 1st may look completely different.
