HTC Rezound, Sensation, EVO to get Ice Cream Sandwich treat

HTC plans to roll-out Android 4.0 to 16 tablets and smartphones including the Rezound, Sensation, EVO and Vivid.

Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich news

HTC Sensation - one of 16 devices that will get an ICS update.

The slow roll-out of Android 4.0, aka Ice Cream Sandwich, continues. Thankfully, if you own one of these 16 HTC Android tablets and smartphones — including the Rezound, Sensation, EVO — you too will (finally) be able to join an exclusive club that currently counts just one member: the developer flagship Galaxy Nexus. For the complete list of HTC devices, see below.

Now, the bad news.

We still don’t know the dates. (now would be a good time to take your favorite sedative)

In a blog post HTC writes “we’re in the early stages of rolling out Android 4.0 for the HTC Sensation and HTC Sensation XE and upgrades will be more widely available in the next few weeks.”

HTC users, don’t fret too much. You’re not alone. Motorola and Samsung (Galaxy S II anyone?) owners are also at wit’s end in the apparently never-ending wait for Google’s latest and greatest.

Meantime, if you’re a hardcore Android, you’re already totally into the root and rom scene.

Note for Velocity 4G owners in Australia: HTC  started rolling out Android 4.0 FOTA updates yesterday.

    The article and text show EVO (assuming it’s the original EVO 4G), but it’s not included on the bulleted list.  Will the EVO 4G get the ICS update?  Thanks.
