HTC has released an official statement regarding its next move after Google introduced the Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich at Samsung’s Unpacked 2011 on Wednesday.HTC’s full statement said,
"We are excited about the latest update for Android, Ice Cream Sandwich, and are currently reviewing its features and functionality to determine our upgrade plans. Our goal for Android updates is to give every customer an improved user experience, which means balancing each phone’s unique hardware, HTC Sense experience and the Android kernel. While our goal is to upgrade as many of our recent devices as possible, we are committed to maintaining every phone’s performance and usability first. Please stay tuned for more updates on specific device upgrade plans".
It remains to be seen exactly which devices, how and when will be upgraded to Ice Cream Sandwich out of HTC's whole Android portfolio, but between scrambling to get new hardware out more suitable for ICS and reviewing what to do with the HTC Sense overlay now, it might take a while until we see the updates boasting Android 4.0 (Android Ice Cream Sandwich).
