Ice Cream Sandwich now rolling out to HTC EVO Design 4G for Sprint
And the latest smartphone to get a taste of Ice Cream Sandwich is the HTC EVO Design 4G for Sprint. Our readers are reporting that the update went live yesterday, bringing their smartphones to the wonderful world of Android 4.0. The new software comes in accordance to Sprint's scheduled rollout.

If for some reason the Android 4.0 update has not yet reached your HTC EVO Design 4G, just give it some time. Android software updates tend to take a while as they are released in batches, no not all users get them at the same time. However, you can always check for an update manually by going to Software Update in the Settings menu.

So, EVO Design 4G owners, what do you think of your smartphone now that it has been updated? Is the experience noticeably different, or you don't seem to find much of a difference? Let us know by dropping a line in the comments.

Thanks for sending this in!

Don't worry about ICS for HTC EVO Design 4G. I got the Boost Mobile version with ICS 4.01 nearly two months ago. It has since been updated to 4.03, and it works smooth and trouble-free. I think Sprint's plan was to test it on Boost first, get the bugs out, then roll it out to the Sprint version.

I got the update the same day as the evo 3d did back on jul 31st. Perhaps they rolled it out w/o an advanced notice to prevent the update servers from getting backlogged ?

Lol Sprint and Verizon are always the last carriers to roll out updates. I'll tell my friend to download it today.

I upgraded my EVO 3D, and I think what is better out weighs what is quirky. The only thing that seems to be quirky is some stuff in my spreadsheet app.
