Some HTC Smartphones To Get Ice Cream Sandwich In March

HTC has announced that the latest iteration of Android, Ice Cream Sandwich, will come to some of its high end smartphones as part of a first round of upgrades.

In an update on its Facebook page, the manufacturer confirms that the HTC Sensation, HTC Sensation 4G and HTC Sensation XE will get it first followed by the Sensation XL.

Later in the year, Ice Cream Sandwich will come to HTC Rezound, HTC Vivid, HTC Amaze 4G, HTC EVO 3D, HTC EVO Design 4G, HTC Incredible S, HTC Desire S and HTC Desire HD.

Unfortunately, it seems that the original Desire, the Desire Z and the entry level Wildfire and Explorer owners will be left in the dark.

Some users are also demanding that HTC brings out ICS for the Evo 4G, Thunderbolt and the Incredible 2.

It is not known whether the roll out will happen worldwide or will be limited to some territories initially.

HTC is expected to launch a number of smartphones running Ice Cream Sandwich at the Mobile World Congress event in Barcelona later this month, including the HTC Edge and the HTC Ville.

ITProPortal will be bringing live updates and exclusive news throughout the 4-day event.
