Luckily for HTC device owners, the company has updated their timeline for its’ devices receiving the Android 4.0 update. The Ice Cream Sandwich update has been available for some time now, and they surely know that you are anticipating the update. To that HTC states, “Our goal is to make sure that an upgrade provides an equal or improved customer experience and that means a high standard of quality for hardware compatibility, adapting device or carrier specific customizations, testing by HTC and partners, addressing device hardware constraints, and many other factors.”
Additionally, HTC has developed a list of Android 4.0 Update Frequently Asked Questions. One of those questions is, “What devices will not get Android 4.0?” HTC states,
We work hard to ensure each of our products has the optimal user experience and therefore some products will remain at their current version of Android. In general, devices with 512MB ROM or less will not be upgraded to Android 4.0. These devices include the HTC ChaCha, HTC Salsa, HTC Wildfire S, HTC Explorer, and others.
HTC tablets, including the HTC Flyer, HTC EVO View 4G, and HTC Jetstream, will remain on their current Android version (Honeycomb).
Upgrades are not the same thing as ongoing support. Devices not being upgraded to Android 4.0 will still get software improvements, security fixes, and technical support as needed.
