HTC currently reviewing Ice Cream Sandwich, good news soon?

Three days ago, Google officially announced their latest Android OS known as Ice Cream Sandwich, which is actually the biggest and most exciting Android update since Eclair. Samsung also introduced the Galaxy Nexus which is the first ever phone to run ICS. Most of you may know that HTC was the first company to launch a Nexus device with Google, and then Samsung launched the Nexus S and now Samsung seems to have taken the lead with the Galaxy Nexus, but don’t start counting out HTC anytime soon. They released an official statement confirming that they are currently testing ICS and — I am not going to tell you everything — just have a look for yourselves:

We are excited about the latest update for Android, Ice Cream Sandwich, and are currently reviewing its features and functionality to determine our upgrade plans. Our goal for Android updates is to give every customer an improved user experience, which means balancing each phone’s unique hardware, HTC Sense experience and the Android kernel. While our goal is to upgrade as many of our recent devices as possible, we are committed to maintaining every phone’s performance and usability first. Please stay tuned for more updates on specific device upgrade plans.

I think this is amazing news for all HTC users and I hope all recent HTC devices will receive this update, and perhaps even the Nexus One will be getting ICS. We can also expect to see ICS powered devices made by HTC in the near future. Anyway folks, that’s all HTC has to say about that. Drop your thoughts in the comment box below.

    I wonder which will be the first lucky HTC to the ICS. HTC EVO 3D ? 😛

    I have three Thunderbolts, sounds to me like HTC is hedging their bet by telling their customers; sorry but we don’t really know how to build a reliable phone that has an upgrade path. So you the customer are screwed. HTC ~ Have Technology Challenges
