With HTC Desire HD Ice Cream Sandwich update status now unclear, the HTC ThunderBolt Ice Cream Sandwich update could very well be in doubt as well.
HTC backtracking on the Ice Cream Sandwich update for the HTC Desire HD is not good news for the HTC ThunderBolt Ice Cream Sandwich update as the two devices are relatively similar in terms of their specifications.
The company said today that it is accessing the HTC Desire HD Ice Cream Sandwich update situation leaving open the possibility that Ice Cream Sandwich may never arrive for the device.
This confirmation comes shortly after it was revealed that HTC had cancelled the update, only to see the company confirm the update would be rolling out. That, of course, may not be true now based on the comments made today.
Unfortunately, this is not good news for owners of the HTC ThunderBolt as the device is essentially Verizon’s version of that device. That, combined with the fact that this is a Verizon device – American carriers are slow to update in general and often leave devices in the cold – and we have some trouble brewing.
HTC has slated the HTC ThunderBolt Ice Cream Sandwich update for sometime during the months of July and August. Thus far though, we haven’t heard anything about the update or its release date.
HTC and Verizon have both remained mum on the subject.
It should be assumed that the update is still rolling out, and of course there is still time for HTC to get its act together with the Desire HD update, but don’t be shocked if and when HTC and Verizon decide that the software isn’t capable of running on the aging HTC ThunderBolt.
We’ll let you know when we hear something for sure.
Anyone out there skeptical about the HTC ThunderBolt’s ICS prospects?
