HTC confirms Ice Cream Sandwich updates HTC has posted today on which devices will be receiving the Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich, and some notes, as well.
The devices are the DROID Incredible 2 by HTC, HTC Amaze 4G, HTC Desire S, HTC Desire HD, HTC EVO 3D, HTC EVO Design 4G, HTC Incredible S, HTC Sensation, HTC Sensation XL, HTC Sensation 4G, HTC Sensation XE, HTC Raider, HTC Rezound, HTC Rhyme, HTC Thunderbolt and HTC Vivid.

No love for the less than out of contract... Evo 4G? The first 4G phone?

Honestly, I'm so sick and tired of the phone rackets.

I'm thinking, Non-smart phone + Android tablet might be in my future


Oh, Im sorry... Did the middle of my sentence interrupt the beginning of yours?

I guess the early adopters (EVO 4G owners) will have to wait for a kind 3rd party developer to port something...again...

Here's what I don't understand: HTC is always saying that the EVO 4G doesn't have power or memory to handle the latest OS/Sense updates, and yet XDA Developers proves them wrong with port after port after port, all of which run great on the EVO 4G.

Here's a suggestion for HTC -- FIRE everyone on your current development team and replace them with the KIDS porting ROMs over on XDA.
