HTC EVO 3D

We have good news and bad news for owners of the stereoscopic HTC EVO 3D. The good news is that the phone is receiving its Android 4.0.3 Ice Cream Sandwich update. The bad news is that the update is for those in Europe, Middle East and Africa. In other words, Sprint customers will remain on Gingerbread for the moment. The firmware update weighs in at 300MB, which also includes Sense 3.6, HTC's skin for its non-One series models. Some of those in the covered regions, weighing in on various forums, were unable to find the update, even when looking manually.

While Sprint HTC EVO 3D users might understandably feel a pang or two of disappointment, a timeline released by HTC last month revealing update schedules for specific models showed the phone getting updated by July, which means that you still have another month left before going ballistic. On the other hand, it's not like the update isn't being pushed out right now to dozens of EVO 3D users in other countries. Sprint customers might be wondering now just what those carriers receiving the update have that Sprint doesn't.

It's worse for people like me with an Evo Design since there is a working on sale version of the phone with ICS. As far as I know there is no hardware difference between the Boost Mobile model and the Sprint model.

What have they got that Spring users in the US don't have? Probably unlocked GSM, which means less carrier bloatware, at least.

It's also available in some parts of Asia. Here in Bangladesh we received the notification yesterday and I heard the same in Pakistan. For some unknown reasons it is still not available in India.

Unfortunately i think that the sales of the EVO LTE are not going as expect and are delaying the release of ICS to squeeze in those last few sales....
