HTC releases full Ice Cream Sandwich roll out schedule

Most Android smartphone owners are eager to get the latest OS updates for their device. HTC is no exception with its wide range of smartphones that come with decent specs that’s capable of running the latest Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich.

With speculation and unofficial announcements flying around, HTC has published a full schedule which sets the record straight on their commitment to upgrade its current and past models. So far we have seen several models being upgraded including the HTC Sensation XE. The Android 4.0 upgrade comes with its HTC Sense 3.6.

Next in line will be the HTC Incredible S, EVO 3D, Desire S & Rhyme which is scheduled for June/July. Surprisingly, the granddaddy HTC Desire HD is still included with roll out expected in July-August.

Unfortunately not all devices are listed especially the lower end HTC Wildfire S, Chacha, Salsa and Explorer. Even their 7″ tablet HTC Flyer is not listed as well.

Head over to HTC’s blog to check out your device’s roll out timelines.

HTC Sensation Gets Ice Cream Sandwich

It was just yesterday that we reported about the HTC Sensation XE getting Ice Cream Sandwich. Today, we’ve been getting reports from readers that the update is available for the HTC Sensation as well.

To get Ice Cream Sandwich on your Sensation, go to “Menu”, then “Settings”, then Software Updates”. Like the one on the Sensation XE, you’ll get the update HTC Sense 3.6 UI skin as well. The update is nearly 300MB big, so WiFi connectivity is always a good idea to ensure a smooth and speedy update.

In mid-March, HTC revealed a list of devices that will be getting the latest Android OS, the one’s relevant to Malaysia are:

HTC Desire S
HTC Desire HD
HTC EVO 3D
HTC Incredible S
HTC Sensation
HTC Sensation XL
HTC Sensation XE
HTC Rhyme

We know now that updates for the Sensation and Sensation XE are available. It’s pretty safe to assume that ICS firmware update for the rest of the devices on the list should be available very soon, if not now.

If you’re using any of the devices listed above and have updated to ICS (official version through legit means), please do let us know so we can share the info with the rest of the readers.

Thanks everyone for sending this in!

HTC Sensation and Sensation XE to get Ice Cream Sandwich by February

UPDATE: HTC Malaysia has removed their post on the Ice Cream Sandwich update from their wall. Could this mean that the roll out is being postponed? CORRECTION: Models earlier reported is HTC Sensation & Sensation XE, not XL.

Good news to HTC owners. Well, to the ones with HTC Sensation and Sensation XE at least.

HTC Malaysia via its Facebook page announced that the two devices should be receiving Ice Cream Sandwich update by February. The update also brings HTC’s latest Sense 3.5 UI skin.

No word on when other HTC devices will get the bump to ICS but HTC says they will update users when they have more info.

And that’s pretty much it.
