The HTC Sensation XL

Users of the HTC Sensation XL, mostly in Europe and Asia, have received the Android 4.0 update over the air. To make sure you have received it, go to Settings > About phone > Software updates and hit that button. You will be downloading a 200MB package which means those with a strict data cap might want to wait for a Wi-Fi connection before installing it. The exact build that you will be updating to is Android 4.0.3 while HTC Sense remains at 3.6. This brings users some of the new ICS features like Face Unlock, the new app dock and the multi-tasking menu. What you won't be getting is the new UI found on devices carrying HTC Sense 4.0.

While the update resembles one that was leaked for the HTC Rezound earlier this year, the last timeline from HTC shows that the official ICS update for the HTC Rezound won't happen until July. That timeline also shows that the HTC EVO 3D and the HTC Wildfire S will be updated by July. In the last days of August you should see the HTC ThunderBolt and HTC DROID Incredible 2 updated to Android 4.0.

Congrats SensXL users. Enjoy. Thanks to HTC, after the initial debacle they are now trying to keep their words about update schedules of their devices. Eagerly waiting for my Evo 3D GSM ICS update.
