HTC Actively Working on ICS Updates as ThunderBolt & Incredible 2 Deadline Nears
With less than 24 hours to go in its self-imposed HTC ThunderBolt and Droid Incredible 2 Ice Cream Sandwich deadlines, HTC is offering up zero answers for ThunderBolt and Droid Incredible 2 owners inquiring about the updates and their timing.
Yesterday, we saw HTC dodging questions about the HTC ThunderBolt Ice Cream Sandwich update and today, a day that sits even closer to the deadline, the company is doing more of the same.
On its Facebook page, HTC is doing very little to assure owners that the Droid Incredible 2 ICS update and the HTC ThunderBolt ICS update won’t miss their deadlines, something that we theorized could happen yesterday.
Instead, HTC says that it again does not have any news to share with owners of these two devices. It’s also saying that it’s still actively working with Verizon on Ice Cream Sandwich updates.
Because there are no other Verizon HTC phones listed on the ICS upgrade page, we assume this means that HTC is still working with Verizon on the Droid Incredible 2 and HTC ThunderBolt updates. Unfortunately, HTC offered no elaboration and It’s unclear as to what that means for owners.
Thus far, there are no signs that the updates are going to roll out today. We have not heard about any owners receiving the updates and we haven’t seen Verizon post any changelogs on its website for either the ThunderBolt’s update or the Droid Incredible 2′s.
It’s certainly possible that Verizon and HTC will work some magic and roll out both updates today but at this point, owners shouldn’t be holding their breath.
Both updates were originally promised by the end of August but now that we’re on the last day of the roll out window without any sign of the updates, it’s looking like September could be the roll out month.
At the very least, we hope that HTC issues a statement (or an apology) giving owners some concrete specifics as to when they can expect both updates.
