Hi thank you for emailing HTC, I do apologize about the wait for the ICS update.
The release date for the HTC Rezound is for sometime in July. Our goal is to make sure that an upgrade provides an equal or improved customer experience and that means a high standard of quality for hardware compatibility, adapting device or carrier specific customizations, testing by HTC and partners, addressing device hardware constraints, and many other factors. Please keep an eye on our social networking pages such as Facebook and Twitter. Again I do apologize for the wait, and hope you have a good evening.
Just to let you know, you can visit our self help website at www.htc.com. On that site you can get some tips and tricks about your phone as well as your user guide.
Again thank you for choosing HTC, and if you have any further questions you can always email us back, we are open 6am to 1am EST.

Yeah, I called them last night and spoke to Bethany. She said end of july, but it could be August. To address to things in your post:
adapting device = Verizon wants the Rezound to be a World Phone and ICS is being delayed while HTC figures out how to make the hardware work with carriers is was not designed to service.
carrier specific customizations = The Rezound ICS update better work with the Bloatware that Verizon rakes in money off of.
If this goes into august they are gonna have quite the angry group of rezounders! The frigging Razzar was supposed to get ICS after we did. They all got it already. How much you wanna bet we have to wait till October or more? HTC is releasing new phones that are basically the rezound with ICS, so what's the problem?
its a great phone even without ics
What is world changing about ics??? its the same phone, i have a buddy running a rezound on ics, it doesnt do anything different
Ya but it hopefully will fix a few bugs, like the complete wipeout of
saved settings on reboot and the messaging app, and keyboard.. I know
it wont be groundbreaking but since we were promised the upgrade we want
it (as long as its not full of bugs)
I'm already in the process of saying goodbye.
Tomorrow by 3 PM my Galaxy S3 will arrive and by Thursday my Rezound will be joining its brothers & sisters on eBay.
