HTC’s Turkish Facebook Page Posts Details For Ice Cream Sandwich Rollout

It was just two months ago that HTC began to outline its initial plans to deliver Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich to some of its key devices. Those devices were the HTC Sensation (4G), HTC Sensation XL and HTC Sensation XE, HTC Rezound, HTC EVO 3D, HTC EVO Design 4G and HTC Amaze 4G. So there we have two high-profile T-Mobile devices on the list as first-run HTC devices to receive Ice Cream Sandwich.

Now, two months later, HTC Turkey has taken to Facebook using a table detailing devices that will receive the Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich update along with an approximate timeframe for rollout. As it stands today, the list indicates that the HTC Sensation 4G and HTC Amaze 4G are on track for a January timeframe.

Obviously we’re willing to give a little leniency here as the list also “confirms” a December 2011 date for EVO 3D, which is obviously a little behind schedule. This list isn’t exactly groundbreaking, but it’s awesome to have a current list on HTC’s Ice Cream Sandwich plans.

    i won’t expect it … but good to know it’ll happen at some point this year.

    And I was just getting ready to root my Sensation and install a ICS rom. Think I’ll wait and see if HTC gets it right.

      Just root. Htc and right just don’t go together well.

      Try ARHD 6.0.2.  It’s the TMO ICS rom.  Has wifi calling.  It’s stable.  Flash away!

      • BigMixxx

        Very good ROM….VERY good rom….I personally perfer senseless 1O7a…buttery smooth.

          I havent tried that one as of yet.  I did try the hackjob rom that was a mix between the ICS launcher and the HTC leak.  Had some issues.  I’m looking forward to CM9.

    I believe it. January seems right I’m running a HTC ICS leaked rom for the sensation and it’s pretty smooth.

      But it is yet to be crippled by Sense.

      • Anonymous

        it’s a sense rom.  It’s actually decent.  Smooth.  You can customize the dock bar. Even has wifi calling.  There’s been 2 leaks from HTC.  The most recent leak is smooth.  I would bet it’s getting released end of month to next month.

    C’mon Desire Z.  Get confirmed & set a date…

    • Anonymous

      No chance. Even AOSP custom ROMs are lacking the proprietary camera modules.

      • http://www.facebook.com/mark.schroeder1 Mark Schroeder

        90% of custom ICS ROMS for for phones don’t have camera so that is not something the Desire Z has an exclusive on.

          Blame proprietary camera modules – mainly HTC.

    Ocak 2012 sounds pretty good.

  • Bkidko

    I wouldn’t get too excited, this list means close to nothing for U.S. customers. It obviously means little for Turkish customers as well, since they already missed one of the deadlines.

  • Anonymous

    What’s the deal with manufacturers and carriers setting dates for updates and missing them or not issuing updates at all?  This could potentially be a reason Android could lose some of its marketshare.

  • Anonymous

    Can anyone explain what is it saying about the Google Nexus One? Google said it would not be updated but I don’t understand Turkish so I don’t know if it’s saying that the N1 won’t be getting it. Thanks!

    • Anonymous

      Google translate my friend.

      Will not come is what it says

    • Anonymous

      I believe it was already stated some time back that the N1 doesn’t have the memory to handle ICS. 

    • Joe

      lacking in memory, lacking in CPU = no nexus one support.  The phone has reached end-of-updated-life ;(

  • http://cosmicbreeze.tumblr.com/ DtheArtist

    If it were true I would be happy. Even if my Sensation can get the update by early February. & by early February I mean the 1st week of February.

  • Wilma Flintstone

    I saw the first ScreenShot of Tizen!!!  Kinda reminiscent of Android and Bada.  I guess I’ll have to see it in motion before I can judge it.  But it’s a start.  I’m just glad that SOMETHING Tizen was shown today.

    Also, I saw lots of phones coming in 2012:
    the Galaxy Note LTE, Xperia S, Galaxy Tab LTE, Lumia 900, LG Viper, Galaxy Nexus LTE, Huawei Ascend P1 and P1S, New Droid Razors, Skyrocket HD, Exhilarate, Xperia Ion, Titan 2 and sooo many more devices!!!  The companies are really pumping out the smartphones now.

    I’ll see if ANYBODY knows what’s wrong with that list of great sounding devices.

    • Joe

      2 issues.
      1: no tmobile devices
      2: galaxy nexus lte released in 2011.  while sprint now has this version..technically google/samsung released it last year ;)

      • Wilma Flintstone

        You Got it.  All those awesome looking devices and NOT ONE is said to be coming to Tmobile.  :(

        Kudos for pointing out #2.

  • Anonymous

    Who cares. ICS on TMO phones like the Amaze is diminished by poor design that allow light leakage to wash out half the main display. I have an upgrade…..but upgrade to what exactly? Buggy battery draining operating systems, washed out displays. Meanwhile, everyone else gets nexus, iphone, Lumia 800 & 900.

    • Chance21

      might as well get the iphone. its been years and android has let me down 4 straight times. Im done with em, jumped to iphone never been happier to have the simplicity of the things just working.

      • Anonymous

        That’s been on my mind as well, AND Apple’s customer service has been great. Been using Mac since ’84. I like Android’s seamless integration of Google apps, but are they not also available on iPhone? I just wish iPhone had a larger display.

        • Chance21

          Yea bigger screen, notification light, and swype. Add that to the iPhone and I would be the biggest fanboy the world has ever seen. But I am surprised as to how much better iPhone is. It’s just sickening to think I wasted all that time and money on android all these years. I really am starting to believe these iPhone bashers have never owned one

        Done- ordered a 32gb 4s unlocked.

    No news at all from T-Mobile today at CES.  None!  Even MetroPCS had annoucements today. 

  • Britney spears fan

    after what i saw at ces i will be totally dumping lame-mobile and either go to verizon or at&t i dnt care if they more expensive all i want is a good phone .. i think i will be going to at&t they did announce the best phones heck i think i will be getting an xperia ion with a 12 megapixel camera and atts LTE cuz they berly turned on LTE over here in los angeles. my friend got a skyrocket on att and he showed me sum speed tests over atts LTE he gets crazy speeds in the 40′s to 50 mbps range. im sure they will go down when more people get on the network but who cares att does get better reception over here inside buildings so thats a plus for me lol … im still shocked they the first US carrier to get a 16 megapixel phone the htc titan i would totally get it but i dnt like it so illl get my xperia ion wit a 12 megapixel camera lol buhhh bye t-mobile it was a good 4 years wit u ill miss u haha NOT!!

      Now Now, lets be fair…  it makes sense T-Mobile is making no announcements at CES. No one 6 weeks ago even though there was going to be a T-Mobile this year…lol

      • jon

        Agreed. Anyone that thinks T-Mobile has any “big” announcements at ces has been living under a rock…the poster above has obviously been under a rock for quite some time because they are fan of a pop star who’s 15 min of fame expired almost a decade ago.
        The next big announcement will be the iPhone and that isn’t happening at ces…I roll my eyes at idiots that claim to be in the “know” and really don’t have a clue. So, I say this understanding I will get the same treatment… IPhone will happen in 6-9 months. Book it. It pains me to say it because I bust on David of tmonews for mentioning the word iphone all the time. But the reality now is, there aren’t rumors and whispers anymore…it is going to happen.

        • Anonymous

          Don’t care about the iPhone but I suppose TMO will get it sooner or later.   What I do care about is the lack of high end Windows Phones on T-Mobile.  But maybe they’ll get the HD8 when WP8 comes out later this year.  Oh well. 

          btw, I’m not a fan or anything but that pop star who’s 15mins of fame expired almost a decade ago.  Well she’s has had a string of top 100 hits over the course of that decade including 2 top 5 hits in 2011.  Don’t be a hater.

        • jon

          Noted: Ms Spears has talented producers and writers…

    • Tbyrne

      This must mean it’s your last post here. Hooray! Tell Randall thanks for giving you the opportunity to experience higher monthly bills and outstanding, award winning customer service. We’re all envious of you now.

      • Britney spears fan

        like i said i dont care if att is more expensive MONEY is not an issue with me. if i can drive an 2011 audi u really think paying 120-300 a month for a cellphone is expensive for me? hmm no its not. And THIS is my LAST post on tmonews so dont even bother writting back beause even if you do i wont be writting back because its my last post. Oh and ill make sure to get in touch with randall and tell him thanks. <3

        • R. Soon

          So in other words, you could’ve bought your contract out months/years ago but didn’t, because…?

  • Pinkteagreen

    I feel thst Tmob didn’t have much to talk about since I think they believed the buy out was actually going to happen.
