AT&T makes HTC Vivid ICS update official, outlines which other phones have ICS incoming
We reported last week that the ICS update for the HTC Vivid on AT&T had started to trickle out. Many of you probably chose to initiate the update manually, by dialing *#*#682#*#*. For everyone else, AT&T has made the update official today, highlighting the snazzy new capabilities, including Beats Audio and the many (many!) new features of Android 4.0, such has Face Unlock.

Wondering whether your phone will also get some ICS love? No reason to be be jealous of your Vivid-rocking friends (ok, maybe a little bit jealous), because AT&T also outlined the other devices it expects to roll ICS out to in the coming months, including:

  1. LG Nitro
  2. Motorola ATRIX 2
  3. Motorola ATRIX 4G
  4. Pantech Burst
  5. Pantech Element
  6. Samsung Captivate Glide
  7. Samsung Galaxy Note
  8. Samsung Galaxy S II
  9. Samsung Galaxy S II Skyrocket
  10. Samsung Galaxy Tab 8.9

Many of those were already confirmed by their respective manufacturers, but if you were wondering where your AT&T device stood, this list is as good an indicator as any. For any HTC Vivid customers that haven’t downloaded the update yet – get going! Make sure your device has a decent charge, hop on a WiFi network, and get to downloading.

Enjoy, Ice Cream Sandwich is a tasty upgrade to the Android experience.

Desire HD is getting it, so if you root, you will get some delicious official ICS from HTC...

Wow, the Captivate Glide is getting ICS, but not the original Captivate? Ah well, thanks to XDA and their Fusion ROM - who cares.....

AT&T needs to push the update for the I-777, the international carriers are getting it now, so its ready. I didn't realize how close the vivid and the sensation where for it to be getting ICS this soon. Go figure AT&T is the first major US carrier to push an update to ICS

I can tell you that the unlocked UK galaxy s ii phones do not have ics yet. You may get it before they do.

Very true I own an LG Quantum so I can attest. Your decision is probably going to come down to Customization vs. Simplicity. If you go with Android you can customize the crap out of it yet that will cause occasional slow downs and quick battery drain. If you go with Windows, the O.S. is lag and stutter free but you lack a lot of customization options that you get with Android. So I really don't know at this point my contract ends in June so I've got plenty of time to think about it. When does your contract end?

you should probably get the One X if it's really such a tough decision between those particular phones for you. o:
