HTC devices getting Ice Cream Sandwich in March

HTC devices getting Ice Cream Sandwich in MarchHere's one we didn't see coming. Despite Samsung being the first to proudly show off Android Ice Cream Sandwich on the Galaxy Nexus, it looks like it'll be HTC to bring the updated OS to the masses first.

The Taiwanese manufacturer has obviously seen Sense (see what we did there?) and promised its faithful via Facebook that many handsets will get the update in a matter of weeks - March, to be exact.

The current flagship HTC Sensation line will be first to feel the love, followed shortly after by various other lines which include both British and foreign friendly names including the HTC Rezound, HTC Vivid, HTC Amaze 4G, HTC Evo 3D, HTC Evo Design 4G, HTC Incredible S, HTC Desire S and even the slightly older HTC Desire HD.

HTC's promising more info is to come so looks like their Facebook page would be the best place to keep across.

We must admit that we were expecting Samsung to pip them to the post here since they were one of the first to announce Android 4.0 would be coming to their units whilst the likes of HTC and Motorola dithered.

Obviously not.

I've been running various iterations of leaked HTC roms since just before Christmas. The latest 4.0.3 with sense 3.6 really feels like release candidate, it's super smooth, fast and thanks to the devs over at XDA, my Sensation runs like an XE again (despite no Kernel source code being available yet). A thoroughly recommend update for latest HTC handsets

After receiving the Sense 3.0 update, I was convinced that was it for the DHD. How wrong I will be when it receives ICS in March.
For HTC to be spending time updating a 2 year old handset, perhaps nods to the fact they have realised that their line up now hasn't changed significantly since then - a kind of appeal to win back leaving aficionados?
I may stick with my DHD for a short while yet, giving HTC the necessary time to bring some magic back in the summer... Perhaps?
