HTC to release first Ice Cream Sandwich updates 'early 2012'

First wave of handset upgrades announced

Secure remote control for conventional and virtual desktops

HTC will be bringing Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich to four of its handsets early next year in what it described today as "the first wave of HTC phones that will receive upgrades".

Up for ICS updates are the Sensation, the Sensation XL, the Sensation XE and the Evo 3D.

Three other phones are getting Android 4.0 too - the Rezound, the Evo Design 4G and the Amaze 4G, but those are currently only available in the US.

The ICS updates will be posted "early 2012", HTC said. Presumably, that's for unlocked handsets - those tethered to specific network operators will take longer to patch.

HTC said it was assessing ICS' suitability for its other handsets. ®
