So far, news about which Android handsets will be making the journey to Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich and which will be left behind to stagnate has largely been coming from the manufacturers themselves. Some, like Motorola, have detailed support pages up outlining which models should be seeing updates, and when. Other are content to release snippets of their progress on the likes of Twitter and Facebook. Today, though, that news is coming from a carrier, with Verizon publishing a list of devices on its network that are slated to receive Ice Cream Sandwich.

Verizon calls this a list of its 4G LTE models that will be receiving updates, but there are some exceptions, like the Incredible 2 which is very much a 3G handset. In the absence of any official list of 3G phones Verizon expects to receive Android 4.0, we’d say the prospects for the majority of those handsets aren’t looking good.

Many of these models have already been confirmed for ICS by their manufacturers. Still, knowing how easily carriers can derail an update, it’s reassuring to get confirmation from Verizon. In other cases, this list augments what we what already knew; Motorola still has the Bionic listed as being under evaluation for ICS on its page, but Verizon seems convinced the update’s a go.

Here’s Verizon’s complete list. For the moment, the carrier hasn’t offered any timetable on when these updates may arrive:

HTC: Thunderbolt, Droid Incredible 2, Rhyme, Rezound

Motorola: Xoom, Bionic, RAZR, RAZR Maxx, Droid 4, Xyboard 8.2, Xyboard 10.1

Samsung: Galaxy Tab 10.1, Galaxy Tab 7.7

LG: Spectrum
