HTC has released a schedule for their release of Ice Cream Sandwich to devices they’ve advised will be receiving the update. They’ve advised that the Android 4.0 update will include Sense 3.6, not the latest version of Sense 4.0 which is included with their One series because it requires dedicated hardware, which is not available on all devices.

HTC have said that devices with 512MB ROM or less will not be upgraded to Android 4.0, these devices include the HTC ChaCha, HTC Salsa, HTC Wildfire S, HTC Explorer and of course my trusty old Nexus One and others not listed, unfortunately for those who imported one of the HTC Tablets such as the HTC Flyer or Jetstream your tablet will remain on Honeycomb.

So the update looks like this for handsets available in Australia :

DeviceSchedule
HTC Desire SJune-July
HTC Desire HDJuly-August
HTC EVO 3DJune-July
HTC Incredible SJune-July
HTC SensationMarch-June
HTC Sensation XEMarch-June
HTC Sensation XLApril-June
HTC RhymeJune-July
HTC Velocity 4GMarch-June

We’ve already seen the Upgrade rolling out to the Velocity 4G on Telstra in March and yesterday saw Vodafone begin rolling out the update to their Sensation handsets. Of course all these upgrades must go through carriers for testing and approval before being rolled out which HTC advise can take up to 45 days. There are a number of other handsets listed at the source but are US based handsets, if you`ve imported one you may want to check it out. Now I just have to break the news to my mother-in-law that her Wildfire S won’t be getting ICS.

Dan is a die-hard Android fan. Some might even call him a lunatic. He's been an Android user since Android was a thing, and if there's a phone that's run Android, chances are he owns it (his Nexus collection is second-to-none) or has used it.

Dan's dedication to Ausdroid is without question, and he has represented us at some of the biggest international events in our industry including Google I/O, Mobile World Congress, CES and IFA.

If your Incredible S is from Optus then their webpage says ‘Android 4.0 – Early August’

Ah poop… no mention of the Desire Z. Any word about that? It did come out around the same time as the Desire HD.

I just received a reply from HTC after contacting them through the website and, unfortunately, this was the response:

“As much as we want to assist you, we still don’t have a feedback if and when the ICS update will be available for your phone. Please wait for further announcement on our website.”

Time to play the waiting game!

I cant wait till August for getting ICS update on my phone. However, feeling luck at least HTC is still updating my phone.
