Just a few days ago we caught word of an update that was rolling out to the HTC EVO 3D and reports are that it also removed Carrier IQ from the device. Folks who have checked around in the manage applications tab have noticed that "HTC IQAgent" and "IQRD," both of which were Carrier IQ, are no longer present on the device after the update.
That's in line with the leaked version of the ROM that surfaced some weeks ago, and it piggybacks the news we broke that Sprint had stopped collecting Carrier IQ data on all of its phones. We're not expecting Sprint to strip the Carrier IQ code out of all 26 million units spread across 15 or so Sprint devices, but it also wouldn't surprise us to see Carrier IQ to disappear from further updates.
