    Nothing we didn't already know, just good that HTC is once again officially confirming ICS for the Thunderbolt!



    Device list includes 16 smartphones


    By Chris Martin | PC Advisor | 14 March 12
    HTC has announced which of its smartphones will receive an upgrade to Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich (ICS).



    ICS has been around for a number of months and it seems that vendors are now starting to get it rolled out to devices. Google’s latest operating system debuted with the Samsung Galaxy Nexus.
    HTC has confirmed 16 devices will get the update to ICS. In the UK these include the HTC Desire S, HTC Desire HD, HTC Evo 3D, HTC Incredible S, HTC Sensation, HTC Sensation XL, HTC Sensation XE and HTC Rhyme.
    Remaining lucky devices are the Droid Incredible 2, HTC Amaze 4G, HTC Evo Design 4G, HTC Sensation 4G, HTC Raider, HTC Rezound, HTC Thunderbolt and HTC Vivid.


    The firm said on Facebook last month that the Sensation and Sensation XE will get the over the air (OTA) upgrade by the end of March.
    HTC warned, "Please note, once we start pushing out updates it will take time for all carriers in each country to get the update. We are working closely with our carrier partners to nail down update schedules for our other smartphones and will have more to share very soon."
    Samsung yesterday confirmed that its flagship device, the Galaxy S II, will get the upgrade to ICS starting next week in the UK.

    Taiwanese manufacturer HTC has confirmed that 16 of its smartphones will receive the update to Android 4.0, aka Ice Cream Sandwich, the company said in a blog post today.
    Ice Cream Sandwich includes a much more beautiful design and new features like a better web browser and facial recognition unlocking. We previously have seen estimates from Verizon and Motorola about their respective updates to Ice Cream Sandwich on Android phones and tablets. Now we have HTC adding its own devices to the conversation, although Verizon had already indicated four HTC devices would get the update.
    The company describes the timing of delivering the important update as such:
    As for timing, we’re in the early stages of rolling out Android 4.0 for the HTC Sensation and HTC Sensation XE and upgrades will be more widely available in the next few weeks. The update for the HTC Sensation 4G and HTC Sensation XL will follow. Please note, once we start pushing out updates it will take time for all carriers in each country to get the update. We are working closely with our carrier partners to nail down update schedules for our other smartphones and will have more to share very soon.
    And here’s the list of devices getting the update:
    • DROID Incredible 2 by HTC
    • HTC Amaze 4G
    • HTC Desire S
    • HTC Desire HD
    • HTC EVO 3D
    • HTC EVO Design 4G
    • HTC Incredible S
    • HTC Sensation
    • HTC Sensation XL
    • HTC Sensation 4G
    • HTC Sensation XE
    • HTC Raider
    • HTC Rezound
    • HTC Rhyme
    • HTC Thunderbolt
    • HTC Vivid
