With the recent announcement of Ice Cream Sandwich, it seems that all the device manufacturers are jumping on the upgrade bandwagon. Many are reporting future plans to incorporate Android 4.0 onto devices that are currently on the market.
Earlier today, HTC posted on their Facebook page that they too were going to be upgrading some devices to ICS as well. It seems that they are evaluating the functionality of the new OS and determining it’s usability on current HTC devices. The following excerpt explains the future upgrade plans and was taken from HTC’s Facebook page:
Since Google unveiled Ice Cream Sandwich earlier this week, HTC has been looking closely at the new OS’s features and functionality to determine our upgrade plans. We’re a recognized industry leader in providing fast and consistent upgrades to our Android devices, and Ice Cream Sandwich will be no different.
Upgrades require a careful balance of hardware and software to ensure the best possible performance and usability, so please stay tuned as we assess our product portfolio. Our goal is to upgrade as many HTC devices as possible and we’ll be sharing details on specific devices and timing in the coming weeks!
We will most likely see a lot of this type of thing from here on out. It makes sense to address the issue before customers jump to another Brand just because they have the next best thing. You can bet ICS updates will come to all manufacturers, some with more devices than others. Bring it on because we will take as many as we can get!
