    I wonder if they have some sort of special deal with HTC? They're always first of the carrier branded versions to get it and generally release at the same time as HTC do the unbranded release.

    ics would give my phone the lift it needs to get me through the rest of my contract i think.

    as long as it doesn't cripple it im happy.

    A few weeks sounds awsome.

    Android 2.3.5/Sense 3.0 was quite a lift. Looking forward to ICS though. :)

    Yes it would be great! That's the only main drawback on ICS custom roms.

    If I remember rightly branded Vodafone phones get the updates pretty quick after release. Well it did with Gingerbread. I remember unbranded users weren't to happy!

    so...will you DHD users wait till ICS comes out or make the jump to the HTC One series/Sammy GS3?

    a few weeks back i was actually content with my DHD, ICS would have been a bonus, but after having a play with the One X i was like ooooooo.....

    Well I can't upgrade til July so by then both phones should have been around a while to get reviews on. Did I hear correctly that the HTC One has already had or is getting a firmware update to fix the battery drain???

    I do like the look of the HTC One, but I still like my trusty Desire HD.;)

    Not sure where the 'few weeks' is coming from? The post clearly states that HD updates will come 'later this year' which to me implies at least a few months.

    TBH I think no one knows when it will happen. Different carriers will update their phones before others so you may have to wait longer or be the first.:)

    There was link in the first post was to a thread on XDA which showed an apparent email conversation between a DHD owner and HTC tech support. The Tech guy claimed ICS would be here within a matter of weeks.

    As the initial thread has been taken down, I presume it was proven as false so malcster updated his link.

    Being hounest id rather wait an extra couple of months and have a stable build from HTC for my unbranded DHD than have them rush the release and we end up with all sorts of problems.

    If your phone is rooted, you won't be able to get official updates from HTC/your carrier but I am sure that, when it is released on the DHD, a custom ROM based on the official release will not be far behind.
