We learned back in November that HTC was planning to deliver Ice Cream Sandwich to their dual-core lineup sometime in 2012 only problem was — when exactly? 1st quarter? Q2? Heaven forbid towards the end of the year… Well, today we finally have a better idea of when HTC plans to update some of these confirmed devices, starting with the HTC Sensation XE.
In a reply to a user on Twitter asking when his newly purchased Sensation XE would be receiving the Android 4.0 update, HTC’s official Twitter account replied that the device would be receiving ICS “early this year.” Okay — so it’s not much but we’ll take anything at this point. After seeing what HTC plans to do with Android 4.0 melding it into their Sense UI, I know it’s not the popular opinion round here, but I, for one, am pretty excited to see what HTC comes up with.
