Telstra customers who own the HTC Velocity, which would be known as the HTC Vivid here in America, are reporting that they are being notified of an incoming software update for their phones. The upgrade has stepped them up to Android 4.0, apparently – a relatively fast turn-around time and something we’re not used to from HTC. More than that, HTC Sense 4.0 – which, up to this point, was only promised for HTC One devices – seems to be joining along the ride. That should be good news for those of you in the United States, but nothing is promised. [via Android Communuity].
