Wait for HTC ThunderBolt Ice Cream Sandwich Update Continues

The wait for the HTC ThunderBolt Ice Cream Sandwich update continues, even as we march further into the month of August.

HTC promised the HTC ThunderBolt ICS update for sometime during the months of July and August though it did not specifically say when the update would roll out. And thus far, neither HTC nor Verizon has given any sort of indication as to when the update might arrive for owners.

If it ever does.


The wait for the ThunderBolt ICS update continues.

We’ve, again, heard that there are slim odds of the update ever reaching the device’s of those who own Verizon’s HTC ThunderBolt. A source told us that there is a 95% chance that the update will never roll out and thus far, HTC and Verizon have nothing to dispel those rumors.

That silence, along with the fact that HTC cancelled the HTC Desire Ice Cream Sandwich update have not helped matters as we get further into the month of August.

Further complicating things is the fact that we have yet to see a substantial leak of any kind, something that has happened numerous times for other devices.

Both HTC and Verizon have a couple of weeks left before they will have failed to deliver on their promise. It could be that the companies wait until the end of the month or even after the deadline arrives if the HTC Rezound ICS update is any indication.

The HTC Rezound Ice Cream Sandwich update was promised for June or July but HTC and Verizon didn’t end up rolling it out until early August.

It’s possible that we could see the same thing from the HTC ThunderBolt update.


Hopefully, HTC and Verizon decide to inform owners of a decision about whether or not they’re going to continue on the ThunderBolt’s upgrade path (we think they will considering how many TBolt owners there are out there) and when they do, offer a more specific release window.

Anyone thinking that HTC will miss the August roll out window for the HTC ThunderBolt update?
