We have good news if you own an HTC handset with the network operator O2. The network has confirmed that it would be rolling out the Android 4.0 (Ice Cream Sandwich) update to its customers with HTC handsets in April.
We all know how frustrating it is waiting for updates with phones ted down to a contract. Unlike SIM-free handsets, phones with a contract would have to wait longer due to the time it takes for networks to run tests on updates. Thankfully, if you’re with O2, you might not have to wait any longer for the latest version of Android to roll out to your HTC handset.
Currently, O2 has failed to mention which phones in its HTC lineup will be receiving the ICS update. Although it didn’t mention any details, it’s likely that the update will be rolling out to HTC handsets that were released in late-2010 and 2011. At least we won’t have to wait very long since April is just a few days away. Expect O2 to disclose more details in the next few days.
It’s a dead cert Ice Cream Sandwich will be rolling out to smartphones such as the original Sensation, Sensation XE, and Sensation XL. However, don’t expect the update to roll out to older models such as the Desire, since these phones may not have what it takes to run Android’s latest version.
We’ll keep you posted once we know more.
