I wonder...

If they'll do pure ICS, or hose it with Sense. :/ I like HTC devices, their build quality, etc - but not Sense.
Isn't sense mostly widgets? If theres something you don't want on one of your homescreens, you can just drag it off the screen, right?
So the HTC Inspire I purchased 2 months ago won't be upgraded to the latest OS, but the iPhone I purchased 2 years ago was.

Either ICS is really processor intensive or they simply do not give a flying crap.

Are the updates based on anything particular? y is the evo 4g not in the lineup but all the phones based off it are?

What about....

...the original Evo 4G? I'm suspecting the hardware requirements are a bit "too powerful" for the original Evo 4G and as it is, I'm due for my upgrade here in Jan 2012. Once I see a list of phones OTHER THAN THE CURRENT GALAXY NEXUS S that begin to have it, I'll consider. I'm steering far clear from Samsung for very good reason.....they don't know how or when the right time is to get their Android OS Updates out their to the Market. It was quite evident with the Galaxy S and prior phones from their line.
