About a month ago, Brian wrote about HTC's initial Ice Cream Sandwich (ICS) release plans. Yesterday HTC published a blog post which added a few models to the list - the complete list is below:

  • 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
  • HTC Vivid

The models that are new to the list are the DROID Incredible 2 (our review), Raider, Rhyme, and Thunderbolt (our review). The rollout schedule has not changed, though. The first models to get ICS are the Sensation and Sensation XE, and the update should be available within the next few weeks (HTC originally said March). The Sensation 4G and Sensation XL will get ICS shortly after, but other models are still in the nebulous "later this year" category.

    ICS on the Rezound feels more animated than GB; smoother. Battery life when Idle seems a bit better on ICS, but the display still drains battery like crazy.

    Look for Nils' Business ICS 4.0.3 Sense 3.6 - 3.11.605.1 on XDA in the Rezound Android Dev forum.

    The Inspire 4G is just a year old. You'd think they would include it as well. It has basically the same spec's as the Desire HD. Thanks HTC.

    I'm dumping these jokers and going with samsung on my next phone purchase. Their whole sense interface that they install over android is a joke.

    I would think twice about the Samsung model you get. My wife's Infuse hasn't got the gingerbread update yet. All this google android updating is a joke. But I still wouldn't have an iphone if you gave me 100 of them.

    I would have an iPhone if someone gave me one, and surely would have 100! Would be a nice addition to my income!

    The joke here is you. Get some perspective in your life, dude, you getting upset over a stupid phone!
    BTW, are you really Russian? (I am.)

    Personally I do not care about this ICS upgrade, there is not much new in it anyway, why is everyone so upset? One month earlier, one month later, does it matter? You people make me laugh.

    (I have HTC Desire HD)

    NOT MUCH NEW IN IT!? LMAO! You really need to check it out because you have nooo idea what you're talking about.
  • Deville - Thursday, March 15, 2012 - link

    No way.
    The widgets and 3D interface in Sense 3.x is what makes other Android users look at my phone and go "Wow!"

    Hasn't everyone interested in the latest Android OS already learned that you don't buy anything but Nexus (and even then you have to cross your fingers)?

    Otherwise stop buying Android phones. Duh.

    It wouldn't be quite as bad if the phones weren't releasing new models every other month. It's the carrot for the contracts. I paid outright for my Atrix, and although it isn't getting updated until later this year it's a pretty good phone. I will likely buy a Nexus in another year or two if my phone lasts that long.
