    Ice Cream Sandwich Droid Style

    HTC slaps Ice Cream Sandwich on 16 handsets • The Register

    As listed on the manufacturer's website, they include the HTC Droid Incredible 2, the Desire S and Desire HD, two EVO phones and four Sensation phones. Devices that don't make the Ice Cream handout include early HTC tablet the Flyer and the Desire Z, leaving several disappointed punters moaning in the comments.

    Glad i have a nexus after seeing what samsung did with ics. Wonder how htcs will look and feel


    I don't do signatures. Blondes, brunettes, and red heads are a different story.

    Yeah.. its funny now that my Nexus feels fairly used and there still isn't another phone for sale with ICS.

    Re: Ice Cream Sandwich Droid Style

    Just because it's coming doesn't mean it's coming soon. HTC has been notorious for taking a very long time between announcements and the actual delivery date. For the Thunderbolt, the build leaks weeks to a month before Verizon actually pushes it out. Gingerbread didn't come out until well after ICS had been released for other phones. I wouldn't expect for the older phones to get this until after jelly bean is released in June.

    The bigger question for Thunderbolt users will be whether this ICS release has a newer version of Sense. That will be the more noticeable change for most users.

    I unrooted and removed my gingerbang sense for now. I want to see how the stock reacts to ics when vz sends it out. If its meh, ill probably go to the gingerbang version when it gets released.

    Re: Ice Cream Sandwich Droid Style

    I doubt my dinc ever gets ICS, unless I root for myself, which I have no intention of doing (I thought doing a factory reset on my phone just to get the phone to update to gingerbread was a pain in the arse).

    Yeah, i'm figuring i'll see what the next round of new phones brings and replace my dinc with a new ics phone in a couple months. Probably wouldve gotten a nexus but i like having removable storage (i like knowing that even if i kill my phone, i should be able to recover the data on the SD card)

    The dinc is still a great phone though, and my first phone that i havent been dying to get to the upgrade date so i can get something better.

    I don't want to wait for a new root to be released on ICS for the DInc2. Maybe after that's been developed I'll think about upgrading to ICS. Maybe at least flashing the rom and running two different OS on my phone until I figure out which I like the most.

    I really like the look of the htc one but boo to AT&T. I'm pretty much locked into vz for life since I have the unlimited data plan for 29 bucks. I would hate to lose that.

    I have unlimited 3G for $29 as well. Will that carry over to 4G when I reup (assuming my next phone is 4G)?

    Somehow I doubt it. Vz has a funny way of screwing the customer. You do it first and let me know how it goes.

    Well, I'm not reupping until August, and if iPhone5 is still 3G...

    Hell, if iPhone5 still isn't out yet, I'm still inclined to go with iPhone4S just to keep my unlimited data - I burn through a LOT of data at work between Netflix and TuneIn Radio.
