HTC Rezound still expected to get Android 4.0 update before end of July
posted by Alan F. / Jul 10, 2012, 9:07 AM
word leaked from Best Buy that the Beats Audio device would be tasting Ice Cream Sandwich shortly and that might have whetted the appetite of HTC Rezound owners for the updated OS build. That brings us to today's response from HTC Support to an inquiry from an owner of the model. The message from HTC was loud and clead, "The ICS (Android 4.0) update will be released for the Rezound by the end of this month (July) with final pushes in August. HTC".
If you've been waiting for the update, it seems that it could be happening for real this time. But we get it and we understand. You want to see the software downloaded, installed and running smoothly before putting on a smile.
- Display 4.3" 720 x 1280 pixels
- Camera 8 MP / 2 MP front
- Processor Qualcomm Snapdragon S3, Dual-core, 1500 MHz

- Battery 1620 mAh(6.73h talk time)

HTC isn't the problem here, it's Verizon. The update is ready to be rolled out, and has been for awhile now. But unfortunately for the owners of this very good phone, it wasn't a huge seller, so it's not real high on Verizon's priority list. I won't be surprised if it doesn't happen by the end of July. Hope I'm wrong though, for the Rezound owners sake.

I don't know who exactly it is to blame, maybe Verizon. But I'm thinking to jump the ship of being a loyal HTC customer/fan. I was first so excited waiting for ICS, then disappointed, then impatient and excited all over again. No I gave up, I don't care anymore. I just want a different phone. Maybe Samsung is better with their upgrades? Thinking of getting SIII, since Verizon didn't even OneX. :-(

It is definitely Verizon to be blame. The amaze on Tmobile and sensation already received the update on May to be specific. Verizon has to approve the update before HTC can release an OTA but Verizon simply doesn't care. They only care for selling it. Which they did used ics as a selling point on the rezound when it came out promising the update for Q1 2012.
