It’s been over a year and a half since HTC first launched the Droid Incredible 2 on Verizon. The phone was quick to get Gingerbread, seeing those updates arrive last summer, but the big question on the minds of owners as of late has been what’s going to happen regarding the phone’s long-anticipated Ice Cream Sandwich update. After all, Verizon’s been saying that the DI2 would be getting ICS since as far back as March, and the phone popped-up on HTC’s official list of ICS updates shortly thereafter, where the manufacturer said it would finalize the handset’s upgrade plans by the end of August. Well, August has come and gone with no DI2 ICS, so where does the update’s fate now lie? HTC recently offered a bit of news, and while it doesn’t have an ETA it’s willing to share, it’s clear that the company is still toiling away on the update.
In response to a question on Twitter about the update’s status, HTC replies: We’re working on connectivity issues with the software. We’re working on a resolution and we’ll share information as we’re able.
On one hand, that leaves us a little worried, as it sounds like the update’s eventual arrival is less than certain. On the other hand, if HTC really was going to throw in the towel, we’d assume it would have done so already by now. Just the fact that HTC’s not willing to concede defeat means that there still might be hope for the Droid Incredible 2 getting one last big shot in the arm as it approaches its two year birthday.
