According to an official response to an inquiry posted on HTC’s official Facebook account, the Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich update for the Verizon HTC Thunderbolt is still on track for an August release.
Furthermore, HTC’s Facebook response states that the company is “still planning to finish updates for all announced devices by the end of August”. If you have an HTC device and you’re still waiting for Android 4.0, this information should be reassuring. However, finishing updates by the end of August and having them installed on users’ phones are two different things. Expect an early September roll-out of the refresh for some phones. Still, it’s good that HTC is offering support.
