HTC on ICS: 'reviewing its features and functionality to determine our upgrade plans'

Here's official word on HTC's plans for Ice Cream Sandwich, straight from your favorite three-lettered manufactuer:

"We are excited about the latest update for Android, Ice Cream Sandwich, and are currently reviewing its features and functionality to determine our upgrade plans. Our goal for Android updates is to give every customer an improved user experience, which means balancing each phone's unique hardware, HTC Sense experience and the Android kernel. While our goal is to upgrade as many of our recent devices as possible, we are committed to maintaining every phone's performance and usability first. Please stay tuned for more updates on specific device upgrade plans."

That's hardly a surprising answer. We're certainly curious how -- or even if -- the Sense customizations will work with what we've seen so far in Ice Cream Sandwich. It's going to be an interesting six months or so, won't it?
