HTC has announced on their Facebook page that Android 4.0 will be making its way to a “variety of devices” in early 2012. Most newer devices are on the short list, but older phones like the Evo 4G, Desire HD, and Droid Incredible 2 are not. If you’re used to using a 3rd party ROM like CyanogenMod, we’re sure that you can get your Ice Cream Sandwich fix regardless of what HTC does—and much sooner. Ice Cream Sandwich will be made public after the release of the Galaxy Nexus this month.
HTC knows how excited our fans are to get their hands on Google’s latest version of Android, Ice Cream Sandwich, so we’re thrilled today to announce the first wave of HTC phones that will receive upgrades: We can confirm the brand new HTC Vivid, on sale beginning today, is upgradeable to Ice Cream Sandwich. In addition, Ice Cream Sandwich is coming in early 2012 to a variety of devices including the HTC Sensation, HTC Sensation XL and HTC Sensation XE, as well as the HTC Rezound, HTC EVO 3D, HTC EVO Design 4G and HTC Amaze 4G through close integration with our carrier partners. We’re continuing to assess our product portfolio, so stay tuned for more updates on device upgrades, timing and other details about HTC and Ice Cream Sandwich.
