HTC confirms Ice Cream Sandwich devices, Sensations first

HTC confirms Ice Cream Sandwich devices, Sensations firstYesterday we heard that Samsung was starting to serve Ice Cream Sandwich (Android 4.0) to Galaxy S II owners in Europe, and we got a semi-update from Motorola too.

Now HTC has thrown its pants in the Ice Cream Sandwich arena (was the timing really coincidence?), confirming which devices – on both sides of the Atlantic – will get the Android 4.0 update.

HTC reveals that it’s in the “early stages” of rolling out Ice Cream Sandwich for the HTC Sensation and HTC Sensation XE. Apparently it’ll be “more widely available” in the “next few weeks”.

Next up are the HTC Sensation 4G and the HTC Sensation XL.

HTC adds: “Please note, once we start pushing out updates it will take time for all carriers in each country to get the update. We are working closely with our carrier partners to nail down update schedules for our other smartphones and will have more to share very soon.”

As for that device list, check it out:

That's rather extensive

It seems to confirm the list they published in a note on Facebook earlier in the year.

I was looking forward to this (I have a Desire HD) but I read a preview of the sense 3.6 that comes with ICS for HTC's legacy devices and it seems little different to 3.0. I hope to be impressed. That HTC are updating it is testament to good support. Obviously they wouldn't want to affect the delivery of their One series by offering a comparable experience, but at least it's encouraging for anyone buying 24+ month's contracts.
