In addition to the HTC ThunderBolt Ice Cream Sandwich update’s missed deadline, HTC also missed the deadline for the Droid Incredible 2 Ice Cream Sandwich update and thus far, the company is not offering any sort of time table for the update’s arrival.
Earlier this year, HTC said that it would roll out the Droid Incredible 2 Ice Cream Sandwich update before the end of August. However, we’re now several days into September and the update is not yet available in any form.
HTC has issued vague statements to some inquiring minds on Facebook saying that it indeed missed the release window and that it’s currently working with Verizon on the update.
So, it looks like, along with the HTC ThunderBolt update, the company is also still working on the Droid Incredible 2 update though it provides no specifics on its progress or slated release date.
That means like HTC ThunderBolt owners, Droid Incredible 2 owners now have an update release date that is in limbo.
What’s also interesting is that Canadian carrier Bell says that it won’t be rolling out ICS for its HTC Incredible S, a device that is similar to the Droid Incredible 2 on Verizon. We’re going to assume that at this point that that has nothing to do with the Droid Incredible 2’s update and that Verizon still plans to roll out the update to Droid Incredible 2 owners.
However, it does leave the door open for HTC and Verizon to ultimately decide not to update the Droid Incredible 2. Again, there are no concrete signs that this will happen but at this point, anything is possible.
Clearly, this is not what Droid Incredible 2 owners had in mind when they were promised Ice Cream Sandwich by the end of August but this what they’re going to have to live with until HTC or Verizon decides to offer some solid information in regards to the update.
We’ll keep you posted.
