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.

    HTC will update the Thunderbolt by the time Google releases the next version of Android..

    Have the original Incredible, guess they've just decided to abandon those of us with that model.

    I have a soon-to-be two year old Desire (original model). I had one OTA update from Eclair to Froyo and was disappointed that I still couldn't squeeze many apps on there due to the apps to sd nonsense and HTC's apparent unwillingness to equip their phones with a decent amount of internal memory.

    My better half got a Hero the month before I got my Desire, she had one update to Eclair and that was that. Both phones stuck in limbo almost before they were unboxed it seemed.

    I never thought I'd say this but I'm definitely thinking of getting a pair of iPhones next time. Time will tell though if this is the right choice for us.

    the velocity 4g (LTE) has it in australia, phone came out with 2.3.x around Jan.

    this is the fastest i have seen the telco (telstra) realease a major update, probably one of the fastest in the world.

    telstra usually drag their feet something chronic with updates, they were about 4-6months behind with XOOM updates, only got 3.2 on mine towards the end of last year!
