HTC Rezound still expected to get Android 4.0 update before end of July

HTC Rezound still expected to get Android 4.0 update before end of July
HTC Rezound owners have heard about the Android 4.0 update for their phone so often, that they probably won't believe it's coming until they already have it on the phone. And even though HTC Support has just confirmed that the update will be started before the end of this month, back in June HTC published a changelist for the update although it was later removed. It's not that HTC hasn't told everyone to expect the update in July. The last timeline from the Taiwan based manufacturer had the HTC Rezound receiving the Android 4.0 update this month.

But back in late March, 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.

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.

Verizon needs to step up. Their Motorola Xoom got ICS 6 months after the WiFi version. That is insane.

Absolutely right doubleD. HTC reps have told me the update was ready in early May. I'll believe it's rolled out when my phone is downloading it.

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.
