HTC's ICS updates start rolling out and device plans detailed

HTC have blogged that they are starting to roll out updates to some of their handsets. The first handsets to get the ICS treatment are the HTC Sensation and HTC Sensation XE, with other devices following over the 'next few weeks'. The other devices due the official update are:

  • 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
Devices that I would expect to see that are omitted include the Desire Z, Flyer and Jetstream. It seems strange that the Z is not there when the Desire HD is as they were released around the same time. Owners of the Flyer and Jetstream tablets will be disappointed with the lack of information surrounding their devices though. The Jetstream is a 6 month old device so surely they can expect to see an ICS update too.

It may well take a while for these updates to filter through to your device as the carriers will probably add delays to the rollouts.

"Once we start pushing out updates it will take time for all carriers in each country to get the update. We are working closely with our carrier partners to nail down update schedules for our other smartphones and will have more to share very soon."

Let us know when you get your OTA notification.

My stock HTC Sensation (unlocked) is downloading ICS direct from HTC now. I used the "Software Updates" option to kick it off. Location: Malta, EU

Update 1: Download took around 5 minutes via Wi-Fi. Can't install yet because the installer said my battery was below 35% :(

Update 2: The install was painless - took around 10 minutes ... everything is looking quite good so far .. smooth, fast operation .... I'm feeling a lot more comfortable with the Sensation now .... My "primary" phone is the Galaxy Nexus, so I have been used to ICS for a while ... this really does look like a very worthwhile upgrade for Sensation users.

Update 3: BAD NEWS! .... The Sensation can no longer see any Wi-Fi networks ..... My Gnexus, EVO 3D, Kindle and Laptop are seeing everything around me .... but the upgraded Sensation seems totally blind :(

Another time, Another thread !

Hi Mark,
Will HTC Wildfire S have an ICS update?

No, I can't see that happening at all. Don't think the spec of the Wildfire S can handle ICS

Desire HD has a bit more ram and a higher model CPU, but even so I think the DesireZ deserves to get ICS

The Virtuous team have a fairly respectable ICS release out with Quattro
