HTC confirms future plans to adopt Ice Cream Sandwich


Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich confirmed as future operating system for HTC devices. What everyone expected to hear from the Taiwanese handset maker is now official on their Twitter account and on their Facebook page.

Upgrading a device to a new version of Android requires balance between hardware and software which is what HTC is doing now.

“Since Google unveiled Ice Cream Sandwich earlier this week, HTC has been looking closely at the new OS’s features and functionality to determine our upgrade plans. We’re a recognized industry leader in providing fast and consistent upgrades to our Android devices (see what Engadget had to say about our upgrades:¬†, and Ice Cream Sandwich will be no different.

Upgrades require a careful balance of hardware and software to ensure the best possible performance and usability, so please stay tuned as we assess our product portfolio. Our goal is to upgrade as many HTC devices as possible and we’ll be sharing details on specific devices and timing in the coming weeks!

This announcement comes to strengthen our believes that HTC Rezound might launch in November with the new Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich (makes sense why it was delayed again for November). What say you?
