Android Ice Cream Sandwich (ICS) coming to HTC Desire S?

November 24, 2011

Well in a word, no – not officially from HTC anyway and not yet. Perhaps. Maybe. Confused? So am I.

Here’s the official blurb from HTC (taken from their Facebook wall)

HTC knows how excited our fans are to get their hands on Google’s latest version of Android, Ice Cream Sandwich, so we’re thrilled today to announce the first wave of HTC phones that will receive upgrades: We can confirm the brand new HTC Vivid, on sale beginning today, is upgradeable to Ice Cream Sandwich. In addition, Ice Cream Sandwich is coming in early 2012 to a variety of devices including the HTC Sensation, HTC Sensation XL and HTC Sensation XE, as well as the HTC Rezound, HTC EVO 3D, HTC EVO Design 4G and HTC Amaze 4G through close integration with our carrier partners. We’re continuing to assess our product portfolio, so stay tuned for more updates on device upgrades, timing and other details about HTC and Ice Cream Sandwich.

Now I do recall having Gingerbread update issues from HTC before. First they weren’t going to bring it to the Desire and then, after a number of complaints, they folded and got it sorted. Can we expect the same regarding Ice Cream Sadnwich (which the cool kids are calling ICS)?

Only time will tell.

Ice Cream Sandwich features a tonne of improved and new features including Face Unlock, even better multitasking and a revamped interface.

Obviously HTC not officially giving Desire users won’t stop them getting their hands on it one way or another. It won’t be long ’til the “scene” get hold of it and port it across to every phone in the world*

*bar the iPhone of course (oh and the Nokia 3330).
