I e-mailed HTC and they confirmed .
The following HTC devices are confirmed to get a tasty treat of Ice Cream Sandwich:
As for timing, 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. The update for the HTC Sensation 4G and HTC Sensation XL will follow. Please note, 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.
it will be a while. i wouldn't hold your breath or you'll just get even more frustrated and annoyed. as it gets closer you will see "leaked" dates on the web.....but the fact is that nobody will really know until it's ACTUALLY available to download on your device. first HTC has to finish it for the tbolt and then verizon has to test it for a while. it tends to take much longer than people think it should. also, nobody knows in what order, exactly, that they will push this to the various devices that will get it.
Sorry to hear you are considering going back to iphone. I would say for the time being going back to iphone would be a poor choice. Apple products are known for being data hungry, one reason is due to there high resolution screens and with only being a 3G device you might get more angry. If you wait it out a little longer you will get your Ice Cream Sandwich, you may also find out that ICS is an intense operating system that I feel only the Rezound and Nexus have enough power to handle smoothly. When the new iphone comes and is LTE I would then say Android and IOS are great on 4G and the big decision will be how big of a screen are you looking for.
the answer to your question is nobody knows. have you ever seen a update announced more than a week or so before they actually push the update? "inferior" is subjective. an iphone may run smoother, but i prefer an LTE device, larger screen, and widgets. iphones are nice....just not my cup of tea.
I am really tired of HTC and Verizon.
verizon's so called best network is not really very good. I live in St. Louis, and I have a hard time getting a decent data connection.
When I took a trip to chicago with my original Moto Droid, I could not: Take calls, Make calls, or use data.
What good is the phone on the network at that point?
Now, I have this Thunderbolt phone. It constantly fails at even the simplest tasks. The LTE modem isn't.
I tried going to store, where all they did was factory reset the phone, and explain that it was my fault for installing Foursquare.
I've tried hacking the firmware - this did nothing.
I tried calling support - They told me that I should not go into the store to get help! DOES IT REALLY MATTER WHAT MEANS I USE TO GET HELP? Verizon, Are you really this confused?
I put the phone back to stock firmware, in anticipation of ICS.
Now, I'm pretty sure that its Verizon that is holding back the reigns on this software update.
I'm ****** off enough at this point that I will wait until my contract is up, and ditch these bozos.
Then I will get a phone that I want on some other carrier. Honestly, I dont expect that to be much better.
At this point, I'm tired of being told half truths, and marketing jingo that is for no other purpose than to make me feel good. Or not having any communication at all - which is the situation now.
Verizon: I am the customer here and you, and media sources that I trust, have lead me to believe that your service is the best.
Well, why does it keep sucking? And why cant you furnish software updates on time that are actually good for your customers?
Why cant you please provide consistent customer communication, and support when needed?
Really, the Communication & Support parts are all that are needed.
I would love to be a happy customer.
