HTC came clean on Facebook on both counts and apologized to customers. They indicate that they are “actively working” with Verizon on the ICS updates, and of course that they will notify customers as soon as the update is ready. While this is probably disappointing for those of you waiting with bated breath for an ICS update, it’s good that HTC acknowledge the situation, and the fact that they are working with Verizon demonstrates that they haven’t simply abandoned the update. Hopefully Verizon’s notorious slow thorough vetting process will allow the updates to roll out soon!
