Everyone was drooling over the HTC One series at Mobile World Congress, and its Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich and Sense 4.0. Now, it looks as though HTC might be hitting up some of their older phones with ICS as well. There has been an email leaked that Verizon’s HTC Thunderbolt has a few devices undergoing a user trial for Ice Cream Sandwich. The trial should run through April, which may indicate a roll out of ICS for the Thunderbolt late this spring. Of course, this trial is no guarantee of that. There was lots of teasing and changing of minds that the Thunderbolt would get Android 2.3 Gingerbread before it actually did.
The email does seem a little fishy – why would HTC have an outside link to Addictivetips.com to explain Ice Cream Sandwich? Why not roll out the test OTA? Why are they providing test devices? We’ll just have to wait and see. Let us know what you think in the comments.
