Following the launch of Google’s Galaxy Nexus and Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich, HTC released an official statement regarding the latter. The statement talks about HTC reviewing Ice Cream Sandwich features and functionality to determine their upgrade path.
Despite the improvements in Ice Cream Sandwich, however, HTC is determined to not let go of their Sense UI and will be working to combine both of them, taking into account the hardware of the device. From what we can tell, you can expect a Sensed-up version of Ice Cream Sandwich on their recently released phones such as the Sensation and EVO 4G but we wouldn’t bet too heavily on slightly older phones like the Incredible S and Desire S getting the update.
You can read the full statement from HTC below:
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.
