    Verizon Wireless Customers holding the HTC Rhyme, HTC Thunderbolt, DROID Incredible 2, and the HTC Rezound can breathe a sigh of relief. On HTC's Facebook page they have just announced the handsets are scheduled to receive the 4.0.x update. Although no timeframes were given, it should give those who have been wondering if their devices would be updated some piece of mind.

    In addition to Verizon's line-up of HTC handsets, the HTC Raider is on the list to receive ICS for customers of Rogers and Bell in Canada.

    thanks bazar6!

    woohoo!!! A few devs have ICS working on the tbolt right now, but no data or camera, so this would be awesome whenever it happens, or whenever it leaks :icon_ banana:DancingNexus

    *And thanks for the credit ;)

    I don't know why they are lagging on this... by the time some of these devices would be updated, there will be Jelly Bean devices showing up..

    DigiTimes has not been the most reliable sources of information so I'd take that rumor with the proverbial............. :smile-b:

    I don't have a Thunderbolt myself, but my wife does and I am very surprised and happy the TBolt is getting some ICS love.

    Yea if HTC gave us what they promised when they sold the device (thunderbolt) UPGARDE TO BLUETOOTH 3.0 Coming Soon....... is that in a "theater near you" Well I guess there are no theaters near anyone !!!!!! and for ICS coming for all these devices I mean really comeon give me a break upgrading from system to system I guess the HTC developers either have ADHD and just cant finish a project or get to stoned and just plain forget what thier doing so on to the next project.....Really has there been a BUG Free STABLE version HTC has put out I dont think so. If it werent for the 12 year old kids in the dev community they may have never had a stable release for any android. And it seams the same on other devices especially the droid 1 even motos last MOTO Build for D1 Was buggy did they fix? no the dev in the commuinty did. So for all the Corp Nimrods just release the source code and let the community fix it then put on your devices.........(blowing Off Steam).................



    !!!!!!!Guess What HTC just relesed ICS for all devices but nothing works updates rolling out soon...............................!!!!!!!

    Silly rabbit, VZ, Moto, and Google say our devices can't handle the powah, and if they say it then it must be true. I wasn't running 4.0 on my D2 earlier today by any means.

    Pretty sure google said somewhere that if it runs gb fine, it can run ics fine or better. Not sure how long it'll take for camera to work though.

    Breakfast beats worrying.

    LOL. :) I wouldn't call it a lag, so much as a publishing delay. Keep in mind that we got our story out within a couple of hours after the "scoop" you guys had at the link above; however, also keep in mind that we are working on multiple stories published on multiple sites, so that "lag" comes because of the physical time it takes us to crank out as much news as we can find for you guys!

    But we try to keep on our toes as much as possible. Good job on you guys for finding a great story. Also, in the future, if you see a juicy story... please either click on the "News Tips" link at the top, or PM me or email me directly: dgstorm@android.net. That way, we can get the great news up as quickly as possible, and you will get the credit for finding it first! That sounds like perfect collaboration to me! ;)

    ROFL. And, you may be right about us being off sometimes. But, if we were almost 12 hours off on one, then that just means that next time, if you see some hot news, please tip us off! We area only human after-all. You can help us improve, which we are constantly striving to do. ;)

    As an interesting side-note, over for the last 4-5 weeks, I have noticed that we have been consistently posting several good Android-related stories up to 1-2 days before some of the big boys like Engadget. I won't claim that we always get it first, but we are never far behind. That's because we have the best Droid-enthusiasts community across the web, and that is thanks to awesome members like yourself! I thank you for holding us to a high standard. :biggrin:
