Verizon Wireless has released a list of devices that will be receiving an update to the latest version of Android, Ice Cream Sandwich.

Motorola already let its ICS-specific roadmap out of the gate, but its estimates were disappointing. Verizon does not say when these devices will actually get the update, but at least we know which current units will get the update some time in the future. Almost all of the devices on Verizon’s list include 4G LTE network connectivity, so clearly the network wants to ensure that top-tier users continue to get the best possible experience.

Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich includes a haltingly beautiful design and many new features like a better web browser and facial recognition unlocking.

Here’s the full list of Android devices that will get the upgrade:

HTC:
• ThunderBolt
• Droid Incredible 2
• Rhyme
• Rezound

LG:
• Spectrum

Motorola:
•Xoom
•Droid Bionic
•Droid Razr
•Droid Razr Maxx
•Droid 4
•Droid Xyboard 8.2
•Droid Xybaord 10.1

Samsung:
• Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1
• Samsung Galaxy Tab 7.7
