Back when Ice Cream Sandwich was officially announced we all took some joy in predicting what devices would and would not have upgrades heading their way and at the time -- there was alot of love given to the HTC Sensation and EVO line of devices as well as the Amaze 4G. As it turns out, HTC agreed and have now put up a list of "first wave" devices that will be upgraded:
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, on sale beginning today, is upgradeable to Ice Cream Sandwich.
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.
So is that the be all, end all? Not really. As we've seen in the past HTC likes to go back and forth and do some testing on their devices before laying down any commitments, so if your device isn't on the list -- don't get all huffy about it just yet. At least wait until they definitively say no.
Thanks to everyone who sent this in!
