HTC in the past, hasn't made any bones about telling us all which of their devices will be getting Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich in the future. Granted, they've made some changes here and there to the list as testing has gone on but overall, they've been doing good at keeping folks in the loop for better or worse, depending on which device you may own. Now, they've gone ahead and take it all...
As it was foretold, the T-Mobile HTC Amaze 4G has begun getting its Ice Cream Sandwich update. The push to Android 4.0 isn't going to hit everyone at the same time, so don't fret if you don't get it right this second.
Here's the full changelog:
Android version 4.0.3 / Software version 2.14.531.3710RD
Android 4.0 (Ice Cream Sandwich)
Good news this morning for anyone rocking T-Mobile's HTC Sensation 4G -- as we reported a couple of days ago, the Sensation's update to Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich begins rolling out today. So head to Settings > About phone > Software updates to see if your update is ready yet.

TmoNews got their hands on a leaked enterprise calendar from T-Mobile corporate, and tucked in the rest of the news was the proposed dates for the Ice Cream Sandwich rollout for the Samsung Galaxy S II, the HTC Sensation 4G, and the HTC Amaze 4G. I won't tease:
The Galaxy S II is slated to be updated May 14
The Sensation 4G and Amaze 4G are expected to be updated June 16
Of course things...
HTC on its blog has reiterated which current phones are slated for an update to Android 4.0. It's not a new list -- we've seen all of these phones announced previously (here, here, here and here) -- but it's good to see it all in one place. In alphabetical order, they are:
DROID Incredible 2 by HTC
HTC Amaze 4G
HTC Desire S
HTC Desire HD
HTC EVO 3D
HTC EVO Design 4G...
Kodak isn't really having the best time financially right now, but that hasn't prevented the company from filing patent lawsuits against both HTC and Apple.
The claims from Kodak are that both smartphone manufacturers are infringing upon some of their digital imaging patents. While they already have an existing lawsuit directed at Apple, this one brings more devices to the table. HTC meanwhile...
If the holiday season didn't manage to bait you into a new phone, this might be your chance: T-Mobile is having a three-day "New Year, New Phone" sale this weekend only, beginning on Friday, January 6. Sure, there are mail-in rebates involved, and you'll have to make a monthly payment ranging from $10 to $20 on the device itself, but a $49.99 down payment on a Galaxy S II or an Amaze 4G is hard...
Now here's where it gets interesting. In HTC's response to questioning from U.S. Sen. Al Franken, D-Minn., it listed some 6.3 million "active devices" that have Carrier IQ installed. They include:

It's not Ice Cream Sandwich.

Improvements to Bluetooth connection

A great phone, for sure -- but is it amazing?
A couple weeks into using the HTC Amaze 4G on T-Mobile, we've pretty much decided the most amazing thing about the device isn't the hardware, which of course is stellar. It's not the software, which is a further iteration of HTC Sense. These things are givens, right?
No, instead the most amazing thing about the HTC Amaze 4G is the fact that we're...

Developers have worked out a one-click root option for the HTC Amaze 4G, that provides a temporary root option if you have a locked bootloader, or a perm-a-root if you've managed to get the bootloader unlocked. While many (yours truly) aren't a fan of one click solutions, I know a lot of you guys love them, and as long as you're careful you don't need folks like me giving you guff.

Both of these phones will take advantage of the new HSPA+42 network (insert your own number of G's here) to offer great download speeds with minimal battery...

This is probably one of those things that seemed like a good idea at the time. T-Mobile chief marketing officer Cole Brodman took to the company's blog this morning to address the persistent rumors (and cries) that the carrier will, should or never will get the iPhone.
The post, titled "About the iPhone - a Letter to T-Mobile Customers," begins:
We’ve heard from many customers who love their T...
