HTC Rezound owners may have a reason to get excited in the very, very near future. According to a leaked document, the Rezound may be seeing an update to Ice Cream Sandwich starting as soon as tomorrow, July 29th. The document says the OTA update should be about 292MB, so be sure to have your WiFi handy before you download.

As we mentioned before, there is a decent chance that the tip was fabricated. An update on a Sunday, "6/1" in the "available for pull" field, and inconsistent use of double digit dates are just some of the warning signs.

Of course, we are all waiting with bated breath for the arrival of Jelly Bean, but the more devices that break the 4.0 barrier, the better. Keeping in mind that prior to ICS, the last version of Android for phones came out over a year prior. It was also a significant change from previous versions. Jelly Bean may be preferable, but it's important that as many devices get some form of 4.x as possible.

That being said, we're eager to see how well that PDK helps manufacturers get these updates out faster. Waiting on you, guys.

There is also a chance that this anonymous tip was fabricated, but we should have a good idea whether that was the case very soon.

Thanks, Anon!

    Funny how we can pull the update a month earlier than the release.

    • awd

      Yeah. Funny how the kid also forgot the 0 in front of the date. Should be 07/29 just like the RAZR update date......................

    If this is the same as the month old leak and Verizon has just held out I will be very pissed off. Being a very good paying customer who has many family members also Verizon customers this kind of crap is not acceptable.

    I called, the women looked at everything she knew to look at, and offered to send me to her supervisor, which I did, I complemented her thoroughness, Supervisor has no idea of any incoming update, I just love Verizon O_o

      normal CSR answer

      • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=1090848922 Hank S. Christy

        I know, I just wanted to gain some of the trust I used to have for VZW CSR's back.

    Meh, I'll believe it when I don't get it...already unlocked, rooted and rockin NewtoRoot's XxX. (you can only wait so long)

    • nicotinic

      Time for you to try the ViperRez 1.0.3. Probably the best ROM yet for the Rezound.

  • mduran1023

    Here's hoping the PDK works out as well.

  • yarrellray

    Verizon and updates don't go hand and hand. They are the WORST EVER in the update game out of any carrier. Htc has given this update to them long time ago Why are they just thinking about getting it out now to Rezound owners??? Oh yeah it's not an Droid Razr Maxx that's why everyone knows all Verizon cares about is there Droid Razr and Razr Maxx branded devices with all that crappy bloatware. Verizon sucks rotten eggs

    • squiddy20

      Wait, so you really thought Verizon, or any other carrier for that matter, would really pay such close attention to non-flagship phones? What a moron.

      • yarrellray

        Your still leaving comments to all my posts. What a sad conclusion you have turned out to be. At least this Rezound is better than that garbage you use the Samsung Moment. Your a joke just like Verizon..

        • squiddy20

          Wow. You still can't read. For the past 3 months I've been telling you that I own a Galaxy Nexus on Sprint. Had it unlocked, rooted, and running CM9 less than 5 hours after I got it home, and a few months after you got yours on Verizon, you were still "looking into" rooting it. Who's the "joke" again?

          • Squidaddy.

            awww little guy still using sprint. sad.

            He only knows what people read to him. It's painfully obvious that he is retarded, deranged, and completely out of reality. He doesn't own most of the crap he claims to own. A "big roller tech-guy" wouldn't have a TV from 1974. A person with any sense wouldn't spew the crap he does all over the internet while proudly using his real name. I've seen him threatened, belittled, ridiculed, cost his employer money, and he thinks it's hilarious. I guess the guy in AAM was right, he is retarded. If he ever finds himself without a job at the soup kitchen, he is absolutely screwed. All you have to do is type his name into Google, and you get thousands (not even hundreds) of his posts with him taking about shitting and pissing on people, attacking people for no reason, and in a few cases, attacking people who actually tried top agree with him.
            What a "sad conclusion"

    Thunderbolt? ...please?

    • http://www.facebook.com/people/Rudi-Xeno/726467137 Rudi Xeno

      Its not looking good for the Thunderbolt

      • http://twitter.com/JWort93 Joseph Wortman

        why do you say that? The only reason the Desire HD did not get it was the available memory, but it only had ~1.5gb of built in memory, and the thunderbolt has 8gb.

  • stevesharkman

    fake.
    don't believe it.

    • steveshitstain

      no shit, shitman.

  • Tony Perez

    It's our own fault for tapping into the rumor blogs. We can't blame the writers for posting something that gets people to click over to their pages. I just decided to delete all alerts for this update and just wait until it hits the news or I get an official e-mail from VZW that ICS is being pushed out. We don't need to keep putting ourselves through this.

    • stevesharkman

      yes we can blame them. they suck.
      but what these dummies don't realize is, they are no better than tmz or other crap sites. they have no credibility and they are a running joke.

      • http://www.androidpolice.com/ Artem Russakovskii

        Which is why it says at the end "There is also a chance that this anonymous tip was fabricated" - not all rumors and leaks end up being true.

  • Howard Z

    the forger can't spell queue properly. also shows pull date if June 1

  • http://www.facebook.com/ShinobiPhoenix Cody Shiranai

    I know this could very well be rumor (it's after midnight so I will check.soon), but HTC DID put out that official statement a few months ago that said Rezound was June-July window.

  • Chris

    What about the DINC2?

    I seriously hope it gets ICS.
