Following HTC's announcement earlier today, Sprint confirmed via its community support forums that it will update the HTC EVO Design 4G and the HTC EVO 3D to Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich in early 2012. Sprint said that Android 4.0 will be pushed out to these devices over the air. It also said that Android 4.0 will be available to "other key products in our line-up." Sprint said that more information will be provided in due time.
At the CTIA Wireless trade show in Orlando, Sprint announced a few new devices. We go hands-on with the HTC EVO 3D and the Samsung Nexus S 4G.
HTC's first 3D phone, the EVO 3D, lands on Sprint's network just in time for summer. With 4G and 3D on board, the HTC EVO 3D is poised to be a sequel worth tuning in to.

The US version of HTC's Hero S - just released for US Cellular - contains hardware supporting Sprint's unique network, including WiMAX, and CDMA in the ESMR (old iDEN) band, according to the FCC approval documents for the phone. Much like the Motorola Electrify for US Cellular is essentially the Photon with WiMAX disabled, HTC has done the same for the Hero S.
