HTC took to Facebook today to confirm that more of their phones would be getting Ice Cream Sandwich. They called it the “North America edition” because all of these devices can be had on the illustrious continent. We’ve got the Rezound, which was already confirmed, alongside the DROID Incredible 2, the HTC Thunderbolt and the HTC Rhyme – it’s pretty much a Verizon affair, here. Above the US borders, Canadians who use Rogers and Bell’s HTC Raider will also be seeing the upgrade to Android 4.0. Unfortunately, we get no release window but at least we know that these devices will be getting them (and I’d bet a pretty penny that they’ll be getting them this year). [HTC Facebook, Thanks Doug!]
