Verizon is one of the most Android-devoted carriers as the majority of handsets it offers come from the companies that are in deep cooperation with Google. Taiwanese HTC is among them and those who preferred this manufacturer’s devices probably kept in mind that their handsets would be among the first ones to get any change. Alas, it’s too far from reality as HTC has only several devices updated to Android 4.0 ICS and the company is behind schedule. There are the HTC Vivid, the HTC Amaze 4G and the HTC Sensation 4G currently running the latest version of Google’s OS. Moreover, the latter has been updated only in select markets. As you see, the Rezound is out of the list, and though you have all reasons not to trust HTC’s promises the company jointly with Verizon has announced ICS will be coming later this month.
I mentioned about the loss of trust in Verizon and HTC because they should have updated the Rezound in days of yore but the update was delayed every time. Now it seems HTC won’t deceive us one more time as the news comes from HTC support via an email sent to a user saying,
Dear Andrew S,
Thank you for contacting HTC regarding the Android 4.0 update. I understand that you are excited to receive the update for your HTC Rezound. I will be happy to share the information I have with you.
The ICS (Android 4.0) update will be released for the Rezound by the end of this month (July) with final pushes in August. Due to localization, testing, and partner approvals, updates do not roll out to all devices at the same time. For devices on a wide variety of carriers and in many countries, rollouts can take up to 45 days from the initial update to reach everyone. It’s almost here, Andrew! We are as excited as you are. I hope you enjoy the rest of your week!
