Droid Incredible 2 May Not Get Ice Cream Sandwich
In addition to confirming the HTC ThunderBolt Ice Cream Sandwich update for July or August, HTC has also revealed some news in regards to the Droid Incredible 2 Android 4.0 update saying that it has yet to determine whether Verizon’s 3G smartphone will ever see the update to Google’s latest software.
The company has released its latest Android 4.0 schedule and the Droid Incredible 2 is currently listed as ‘to be determined.’
It says that a decision about whether or not the Droid Incredible 2 will get the software will be made by August. So that means that owners may have a few months to wait until they get an official ruling from HTC. Hopefully, the manufacturer decides much earlier than that, but we can’t be sure.
The news comes shortly after Motorola decided to inform Motorola Droid 3 and Motorola Droid X2 owners, also 3G devices on Verizon, that they would not be getting the update to Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich.
It’s assumed that the 512MB of RAM on both of those devices is what’s holding them back. Motorola seems to only be updating devices with 1GB of RAM.
However, unlike those, the Droid Incredible 2 has 768MB of RAM which bodes well for an update. In addition, the HTC Sensation 4G for T-Mobile also sports 768MB of RAM and it just received Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich a couple of days ago.
So while things might look a little bleak at the moment, there is a very good chance that the Droid Incredible 2 will see the upgrade to Android 4.0 at some point down the road.
Keep in mind, that August date is for a decision, not a roll out, so it could be awhile before the update actually rolls out to the phone.
Does this make you angry, Droid Incredible 2 owners? Or does this give you hope?
