HTC Firms Up Plans For Ice Cream Sandwich

More than a half dozen HTC phones slated for update

If you have one of the newest HTC phones, chances are you'll be able to get the latest version of Android, and to confirm HTC has begun its promises for who will get Ice Cream Sandwich and when.

"HTC knows how excited our fans are to get their hands on Google's latest version of Android, Ice Cream Sandwich, so we're thrilled today to announce the first wave of HTC phones that will receive upgrades," the company wrote on its official Facebook page.

The brand new HTC Vivid gets a jumpstart on most other phones; it is getting upgraded to Ice Cream Sandwich as of right now. Several others are slated for an upgrade in "early 2012," according to HTC. Those devices include:

- The Sensation
- The Sensation XL
- The Sensation XE
- The Rezound
- The Evo 3G
- The Evo Design 4G
- The Amaze 4G

This is not an exhaustive list of all HTC phones that will receive the update. The company said other handsets may be eligible as the months progress.

The manufacturer is being more cautious about upgrade promises after it failed to deliver on bold promises about the last major Android update.

"We're continuing to assess our product portfolio, so stay tuned for more updates on device upgrades, timing and other details about HTC and Ice Cream Sandwich," HTC assured.
