HTC Desire HD & others getting Android ICS: Update
There have been many HTC owners left confused over what devices will be getting the Android ICS update, one of the popular handsets many would like to know if it will receive the update is the HTC Desire HD.
Well, on Saturday we reported that the HTC Desire HD would not be getting the Android Ice Cream Sandwich update, according to the Canadian carrier Telus the Desire HD 4.0 update was cancelled, and apparently this was due to poor device performance during testing. Good news is that this seems incorrect; we say this because we have seen the official HTC Facebook page stating what devices will be getting the update.
The Facebook message starts off with “Thank you for contacting our Customer Support Center with regards to your inquiry”; this was to answer someone’s question regarding the update. It says that the devices getting the ICS update later this year will include the HTC Amaze 4G, HTC Evo 3D, HTC Rezound, HTC Design 4G, HTC Desire S, HTC Rhyme, HTC 4G+, HTC Incredible S, HTC Vivid, HTC Raider 4G, and the HTC Desire HD, the Desire HD can expects its upgrade between July and August.
HTC also goes on to let customers know that they want you to stay tuned for more updates on upgrades on devices about HTC and Ice Cream Sandwich. Users of the above Android phones will be notified when the upgrade is available, to check for updates please do the following: Menu -> settings -> about phone -> system software updates -> check.
