Its been only 2 weeks since Google unveiled its Ice Cream Sandwich Android OS along with its flagship phone Galaxy Nexus. Android’s other OEM’s were surprisingly discreet about their devices getting ICS. HTC was initially rather vague about its upgrade plans — no doubt faced with the daunting task of keeping Sense relevant in light of ICS’ vast design improvements — but tonight the Taiwanese giant issued an official statement on Facebook announcing specifics on Ice Cream Sandwich upgrades.
Almost all of HTC’s high-end mobile phones are bound to get ICS upgrades since the introduction of the Sensation will be getting a taste of Google’s latest tasty treat.
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 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.
