htc confirms ICS for tbolt....again.....

well they have been issuing official responses so i suppose they are still planning on pushing the ICS update for the tbolt, but they still wont say when so i wouldn't hold your breath (they made similar official announcements back in august):
http://www.technobloom.com/htc-thunderbolt-ice-cream-sandwich-update-planned-according-to-company/22...

i will be grabbing the note II so i don't really care much anymore. however, i do still feel like people are justified in being disappointed over this. i understand the complications with updates and i understand that eventually phones will not get updates, after they are so old. however, this was the first LTE phone on the market and was barely 6 months old when ICS launched. today, it is barely a year and a half old, but is now 2 versions behind in the OS. pitty, if you ask me. i still think the bolt was the best on the market when it launched, and it still runs great for me today. i just wish that when i sign a 2 year contract, i could be confident that what i purchased will be supported for that same 2 year period. i know this is an issue with android in general and i understand that i shouldn't buy something in hopes of what it may be able to do a year later, but i do still believe that the very high end devices should be kept up to date. it seems like you will have to buy a new phone every time there's a new version of android if you want to be positive that you will have the latest version.

At least they haven't canceled the update yet. So it could be worse.

Typing this from my Tbolt right as I switched to it earlier this week to test some issues I was having with the network. I still manage to like using it especially that massive battery. 🙂

For a brick that 2750 mAh battery sure does last long. 😄
