We’ve been told by a source that HTC and Verizon Wireless will issue the Android ice Cream Sandwich update for the HTC Rezound by the end of this month for testers and by August 3 for all devices.
HTC Rezound’s ICS will include multitasking support, data management, camera app improvements and other Ice Cream Sandwich features including Chrome for Android app support and improved keyboard.
HTC Rezound was launched last year with Android Gingerbread. It features a dual-core Scorpion Qualcomm Snapdragon processor, 1GB RAM and features a 720p HD S-LCD capacitive touchscreen. The high-end Android-based smartphone also includes a back-facing 8-megapixel camera, Beats software and HTC Sense version 3.5 custom user interface.
Apparently, the latest version of Android is Jelly Bean, and it is safe to assume that HTC Rezound is one of the smartphones that will receive a Jelly Bean update apart from HTC’s high-end HTC One X and other dual-core devices like the HTC Sensation, HTC Amaze, ETC.
For starters, Jelly Bean includes new features including Google Now and improved Google search with voice, aside from smoother UI and new camera enhancements and other apps add-ons.
I am doubtful. That sounds like an awfully short time for testers to give feedback to the publishers for bug fixes. Sounds like another line of bull to me. Put me on the "testers" list. They know my number.
SOOOO Full of yourself demmo...
"So, a little birdie told me that the ICS OTA rollout should be on in two weeks from now. It sounds like it is going through a soak test currently (to those in the Beta program) and, as I said, should push in two weeks. My source is reputable (though he was delivering the news second hand, so you can take it with a grain of salt if you like), and isn't the kind of person to just spout something like this if it wasn't true. Again, take it with a grain of salt if you like, but it appears if the time is at hand."
2 weeks, you posted that on the 24th.... That's the 7th... not the third. Also, "available on all devices on the 3rd" is not "it will start rolling out 2 weeks from now"
4 days? After all the complaining you have done about the alleged delay, you are going to squabble over 4 days? I didn't get an exact date, so I didn't give an exact date. And, "available to all devices" means you can pull the update manually. The OTA push will be staggered. That is also opposed to just beta testers.
