HTC Rezound Android 4.0 update all over HTC's web site; Verizon's site? Not so much
On Tuesday, we told you that the HTC Rezound was getting a hair cut in price to $79.99 with a signed 2-year pact. On Wednesday, HTC's website was all about the Android 4.0 update for the device. Not only did the Taiwan based manufacturer say that the update was ready to go, it even put up a changelist dated June 20th, so that HTC Rezound users could see what changes are coming to their handset. The only problem is that Verizon had nothing on its site about the update and apparently no software was pushed out to the phone on Wednesday.

Among the changes that are expected once Software Number: 3.14.605.10 710RD does finally get installed on your HTC Rezound is the Android 4.0 update of course, the update of VCAST Media manager to Backup Assistant Plus, and the addition of the Caller Name ID application to all apps. Additionally, any problems with time zones on the clock widget have been fixed. After the update, the device will be enabled for the Wireless Alerting System, and to improve VPN functionality, support has been added for Cisco AnyConnect. User of the HTC Rezound should notice the improved data connectivity and the improved devie stability should lessen the handset's need to be reset. There will also be improved connectivity to mobile HotSpots. Lastly, the default mail app should display all Yahoo email correctly.

You can check for yourself to see if the update is on your HTC Rezound by going to Menu > Settings > Software Update > Check New. Let's us know if for some miraculous reason, your device has the Android 4.0 update ready to be installed. We wonder if HTC's timing is off here as the last timeline that they disclosed had the Beats Audio device getting Ice Cream Sandwich in July. Meanwhile, the manufacturer appears to have removed the update from its site.

This is the big issue with OTA updates. It would be nice if you could just download the update from the manufactures' website. Look how quickly the WI-FI only edition of the Motorola XOOM got its update. It's probably because the carriers want to put all that bloatware on our phones.

I've been getting an "error: server unavailable" message, telling me to check again when I have service, even though I have good perhaps there's hope?

Well, some of us who actually own a Rezound would like be updated on news concerning the phone. If you aren't impressed, don't comment. Simple as that.

I actually got a text message from VZW on June 15th which stated: Your phone will soon be upgraded to Android 4.0. At that time we will remove your Verizon Wireless Mobile IM app because it is not supported on Android 4.0. Please download a new instant messaging app to use IM on your phone. I have been checking for software updates and nothing yet! What a tease.
