We know that you’re a bit disappointed by the fact that Verizon has not rolled-out the HTC Rezound Ice Cream Sandwich update by now, and we are eagerly awaiting that particular moment when we will finally be able to report that the highly-anticipated update has hit the waves, but for now all we can do is inform you about the latest happenings and keep you up to date with what the carrier is planning regarding the matter.
HTC Rezound Ice Cream Sandwich (Android 4 ICS)
As you may already know, at the end of June, Big Red announced that Android 4.0 for the Rezound has finally hit the waves. However, something strange happened, the carrier pulled the plug and the roll-out has been halted.
We hoped that Verizon will be able to deploy ICS by the end of June, since it was reported that Android 4 should hit the waves either by the end of June, or the end of July, but things turned to be not exactly as we wished. However, Verizon and HTC are still planning on launching the HTC Rezound Android 4 ICS update on-time (read by the end of July).
Apparently, one concerned HTC Rezound owner has sent an email to Big Red the manufacturer, asking when exactly he’ll be able to update his handset. The carrier HTC responded and informed its customer that Android 4 ICS will hit the waves by the end of July, with final pushes happening in August. It is also mentioned that the reason why the company is unable to deploy ICS earlier is due to partner approvals, testing and localization.
We’re not sure what to make of this, since we were led to believe that Verizon and HTC already got those things out of the way, but there you have it.
Bottom line is, although Rezound owners might feel a bit disappointed by what the carrier had to say concerning the matter, in case Big Red manages to roll-out the update by the end of July, it would still be on time. But, as usual, earlier rather than later would have been better.
That’s about it, stay tuned as we’ll keep you up to date as soon as the story develops.
Thanks Droid Life for the heads-up regarding the HTC Rezound Ice Cream Sandwich release date.
