HTC EVO 3D Ends The Month With Ice Cream Sandwich On Sprint


Following HTC’s indecision over the Ice Cream Sandwich update for its Desire HD, and the ultimate choice not to proceed with the software’s release, we wouldn’t blame HTC users for growing a little apprehensive about the ICS fate of some of the manufacturer’s other models. It’s seemed pretty certain that the EVO 3D on Sprint would get an ICS update, especially as the Virgin Mobile and Canadian versions of the phone already have Android 4.0, but news of delays may have stirred-up some concern. After all, first we heard from a Sprint exec that the update would land in June, but then HTC later expanded that to June-July. It was very nearly looking like Sprint would miss even that new window, but with the clock ticking down on July, the carrier has come through, and owners of the phone are now reporting that the update has become available.

This is great news for EVO 3D owners, but now with everyone’s attention already shifting from ICS to Jelly Bean, there will be little reprieve before you’re already anxiously awaiting that update’s arrival, too. In the meantime, you can start playing around with Chrome and all the other Android 4.x exclusives your phone is now privy to.

According to Sprint, you can now manually initiate the update, and notifications will start going out to phones en masse early next month.

Update: The EVO Design 4G is getting its ICS, too.
