Sorry, Motorola DROID RAZR and DROID RAZR MAXX owners: turns out April 4th wasn’t your day, as previously indicated in a Best Buy leak. But according to yet another leak (which acknowledges the delay for the Moto phones) the Ice Cream Sandwich update is still going out to the HTC Rezound on Friday, April 6th, tomorrow. The update doesn’t offer an explanation for the Moto delays, but odds are pretty good that Best Buy made the mistake that we and many others did, assuming that the latest Gingerbread update was something a little more timely.
HTC has made a point of assuring customers that the Android 4.0 update was coming ever since the Rezound was announced back in November. We believe them, too: there’s already been a leaked version of the Rezound update that’s made its way out to the excited modders of the world. Given that it’s been a couple of weeks since that one escaped Taiwan, the update tentatively scheduled for tomorrow may or may not be a later version. In either case, you’ll want to comb the Android forums for one of HTC’s ROM Update Utility files to get your phone back to stock if you want the over the air update.
What are the odds that Best Buy’s internal sales systems are accurate? Since no one mentioned the lack of RAZR updates until after they had made a statement with their absence, we’d guess that it’s approximately 50/50. HTC has already proven to be a little more timely with their Android 4.0 updates that other major manufacturers, releasing ICS for the HTC Vivid on AT&T and some of its international cousins. Keep those Settings menus handy tomorrow, Rezound fans.
