    Glad to see the E3D made the list. Hopefully ice cream sandwich wont take half a year plus to hit our phones!

    WAY quicker than the 20th!
    They already have it booting off the SDK....
    A real ROM Dump will be a snap.

    NOW.....The question is ....will the have the 3d/4G/WiFi working by the 20th.....

    To qualify for my over/under it has to have at least 4 of the following 5 things:

    3d
    4g
    wifi
    bluetooth
    working dual-core support

    I don't understand why they phrased it this way. Anybody have any input?

    Well when you buy a phone from sprint, it's already very different than if you buy the same phone from verizon. They all have their own bloatware and garbage (and on the rare occasion, useful things) they want to throw onto your phone for varying reasons.

    None of them would be very happy if a new OS came in, tabula rasa, without them getting their fingers in the jar

    I would love it if there was an official HTC build of Vanilla ICS without Sense, as an optional upgrade.

    I dunno, bluetooth was apparently a b**** for the cm7 team for some reason.

    Yeah I figure it'll probably be before the 20th, but it'll be close methinks

    Sometimes it's fun to look back to see how much a fortune teller gets wrong:

    http://androidforums.com/htc-evo-3d/400678-ice-cream-evo-3d-discussion.html#post3108965

    This guy was good, and he fooled a great deal of people for a long time. But even toward the end when he clearly had no credibility with most of us, there were still some people strongly defending him and giving him the benefit of the doubt.

    But it all comes out in the wash, as EarlyMon likes to say. In 8 days, the last of his predictions will come to pass. What do you think? Will we have ICS next week? :)

    LOL, that made my day. I remember that guy. Hey lets see in 8 days. PS i will not unroot to take ICS

    Well, he was right about us having ICS by Nov 23rd. We do have ICS. You just have to compile it from source, build a kernel to run it, and flash it. See? Easy! You'll have ICS by next week...No problem!

    Wait, what? Even CM7 doesn't have everything working, yet? Pfft! Semantics!

    My friend that works at Walmart in the cell phone department told me about an hour ago he was at work (Walmart) and there demo EVO 3d got an update to ice cream today!? So that must mean HTC put their finishing touches on it now sprints doing theirs but my ? Is why would the demo phones at walmart/Sprint get the update cause the general public can easily view such phones?! And how Long do we think before sprint will push the update out to us?! And while he was telling me this his Droid incredible 2 on Verizon got an update to android 4.08.... Is that ice cream!? He's obviously through Verizon but still !?!? If anyone has any idea or information it would be greatly appreciated and this is 100% serious no joke to get everyone all riled up!!! I swear this information is 100% true!!!!

    I'm not joking around..I swear on everything I love this is what my friend Brian told me and he is very reliable! I wouldn't make something stupid up like this why would I? I know there's a lot of idiots that do that but I'm not one of them.. I only use this for information about sprint/android/my phone not to cause a whole heep of drama or lies trust me!! I just wondered if there was any credibility behind this anywhere else? Because in Erie pa there is as far as I know I haven't physically seen it myself but I'm going to have him send me a screen shot of it from that demo EVO 3d tomorrow!

    A screen shot of the system info non rooted and I'm also going to check this out for myself because it seems hard to believe to me as well i just figured id throw it out there to see if anyone else has seen or heard about such things?!

    Let's not start into attacking each other :)

    It's not unheard of to see a phone here or there get an early leak of the latest OS build. But those are usually not seen for a few months after the OS is released. I remember the frenzy over Gingerbread with the DX.

    But, often enough, someone does claim to have the newest build on their phone and offers nothing to back it up. So most forum users just don't believe it until there are pics to be scrutinized or leaked builds to be flashed.

    Personally, I'm in the 'it's too early' camp. I wouldn't even hope to see a leaked version until early to mid January.

    Okay well my friend came into my work this morning and he told me that, that specific EVO 3d demo is FROZE!! he did a battery pull and a reset and It's froze 100% on the firmware version screen and the sprint rep is suppose to come today and swap that phone out for the photon?! And he called his sprint rep about that issue and the rep said "yeah i know" when he told him it was froze!? So Idk if that release was by accident or what!? But this seems strange to me..but things like this have happened before where the website for Verizon,sprint said a phone had a newer firmware with release of phone than it did and it magically changed back to the old firmware When a new firmware was set to release so Idk!?

    Okay well the update on that EVO 3d I mentioned ... Apparently the sprint rep came last night and bought the phone back and hadto pay full price!! And i got word that Walmart aka other retailers that sell cell phones (radioshack) etc... Pay for the phones and just receive a discount from sprint, Verizon,at&t etc... So basically the sprint rep came there last night paid full price to pick up the demo phone that somehow got upgraded to ice cream and now the demo EVO 3d with ice cream is gone!! :( :( :( :( take from this what you will but in my opinion because this is 100% true it shouldn't be too much longer before we get ice cream!!
