HTC today provided more details via its Facebook page on when it will update its existing smartphones to Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich. The first batch includes the Sensation, Sensation 4G and Sensation XE by the end of March, with the Sensation XL soon after. HTC says that owners of the Rezound, Vivid, Amaze 4G, EVO 3D, EVO Design 4G, Incredible S, Desire S, and Desire HD will receive Android 4.0 later this year. HTC will provide more specific details about the upgrades in the coming weeks.

Lacking Support

So let me get this straight... HTC has completely abandoned their not even 2 year old EVO 4G for upgrades? Have abandoned their not even a year old Glacier (MyTouch 4G) for upgrades, and is favoring the Sensation line up OVER the Amaze? REALLY?

There is a reason HTC is not the leader anymore.

While I used to HATE Samsung, and I still wont use anything with TouchWiz, Id rather buy a Samsung phone and root it and customize it than buy another HTC phone. Why? Cause at the end of the day, Samsung is learning to support their line up longer, and HTC has discovered they dont have to....but look where it got them!

Id rather go with a company that will support updates (and yes these phones BOTH have enough space and power) than stick with ...
HTC updates way more phones, and does it way more quickly than either Samsung or Motorola.

And that's not even counting that Samsung has never put out an Android update with out it having an issue and needing to stop the update til they fixed it.
What about their flagship GSM device, the HTC Inspire 4G? That's still on sale, and isn't even getting updated.

But it's like I always say- if you want a good device, you don't buy an Android phone.
Two year old phones should get major updates? Wow. I think that's a pretty high bar. I don't know if that's ever even happened. I would never expect a phone older than one year to get a major update.

This is why HTC rocks!

They are much more consumer oriented in the way they unlocked bootloaders and now at least giving a timeline in their planned ICS roll out. Motorola understandably has their reasons but can they really be justified in light of what HTC is doing?
Can't wait to see if it comes out for the mytouch 4g (HTC Glacier).
