    Can you even justify that statement? When have you ever seen an iOS update (which is sent to to pretty much EVERY iPhone, unlike Android) "kill" a phone? Because I sure haven't. And every one of my friends who has one hasn't experienced that.

    We get your point, Die Hard Android fan. I'm not hating on Android, I just want a consistant experience with my next mobile phone.

    Let's keep it cool... the OP backed off initially, so let's try and keep it civil. He's entitled to his opinion, as are those who disagree with him, but just keep it civil and respectful.

    And Pere... I LOVE that video! :)

    I read it was to be released sometime in March. They still have almost 2 weeks to fulfill that rumor.

    I know many people with iPhones that don't have the latest iOS 5.x on their phones. They are completly oblivious as to what it can do (mainly that pull down Android notification bar). they are perfectly happy with what they got now.

    As another PP said, what difference will you notice with ICS? Its like buying a car. You have an 20xx model car. The next year they come out with a redesign and add X+Y features. Did your car fail in every way possible that you need to return it and get this new latest model?

    You buy a 47" TV, top of the line. Next superbowl comes around and they add X features. Do you run out to get a new TV and scrape your less than 1yo set?

    No?

    I'd like ICS, but I'm happy with mine. If I never got ICS, I'm pleased with the performance and the OS I do have. I could understand having a top of the line phone (say the Razr or a Rezound or something) and they say you will never get ICS. I'd be a bit more pissed as they are newer and more powerful phones.

    But itsa the OP's choice to go to an iPhone. I call the bluff though. I'd like to find out in May what he did.

    Roger that.
    ;)

    But Apple certainly does kill off phones. Anyone still have a 3G? That killed killed with the 5.0 update. And When the next phone comes out, the 3GS will be history. ANd so on and so on. They all do it Kev.

    Some of their phones are supposed to get ICS in the first quarter of the year. I'd say the Dinc2 won't get it until quarter 3-4.

    ICS Change

    I don't root or use custom ROMs. I don't even use a custom launcher. I'm pretty happy with the phone the way it is with a few minor cosmetic changes (clock skin, weather skin, etc.). I think the only "must have" feature of ICS that I want is that the home screen should do landscape mode. I'll probably manage to struggle on with things the way they are until the update comes.

    HTC has responded to this MANY times in the past. They have release ICS to some devices (primarily on AT&T) because they have finalized Sense to work correctly with ICS. You could follow their Facebook page and ask them there. I don't think that rooting your phone at the moment to get ICS is worth the time. And ICS is barely on to any Android devices (counting ones that did not come with it already installed.) It's coming soon enough.

    iOS is a operating system that runs on all Apple mobile devices. Every Apple mobile device is built specifically to run iOS. Apple implements new features so some devices are old, outdated, and left in the dark. It's really confusing, I know. xD

    iPhones aren't good. Eveything my Dinc2 does, I would have to JB an iPhone. I enjoyed having a JB iTouch, but JB gets OLD after awhile. I love the Android OS, sure ICS isn't out yet, and I'm an impatiant kid with ADD who looks up when the update arrives during school...but what I'm trying to say is, "the joys of ICS come to those who wait." I've been waiting for six months for ICS, but then I try to focus on something else to keep me busy, HTC is taking their sweet time, but the joys of ICS will be here, and it'll be like a holiday for me. I was SO happy when Gingerbread came out, because I was running on Froyo, but I didn't notice anything different, but my phone seemed more stable. So, yeah, let HTC take their time, and let them fix the bugs, THEN we might get the ICS by summer or something! :D

    I just hope they don't load the ICS build down with a metric ton of Verizon bloatware.
