HTC recently took to its Facebook page to reiterate that Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich updates are still in the works for a number of its devices. HTC was responding to customer complaints, as HTC has missed delivering ICS updates on time to several devices, such as the Rhyme, which was supposed to get ICS in June/July.
lol why even bother with throwing out the update?
