HTC has until now released the Ice Cream Sandwich updates for the various variants of the Sensation, and the single-core powered HTC Incredible S. While the original announcement from HTC stated that the Desire HD will be getting Ice Cream Sandwich, the company recently announced that the ICS update for the handset has been scrapped. The reason behind denying the ICS update was due to the lack of sufficient space on the /system partition on the handset.
Rumors soon started floating around that HTC might axe the ICS update for the Thunderbolt, since the handset packs similar specs as the Desire HD.
HTC has now confirmed via its Facebook page that the Ice Cream Sandwich update for the Thunderbolt is still on track. Here is the full comment from HTC -:
Hey, John! Yes, The Thunderbolt is still set to receive ICS. We’re still planning to finish updates for all announced devices by the end of August. Thanks for remaining so patient!
Don’t get your hope too high though. In all probability, once HTC finishes the ICS update for the Thunderbolt, they will give it to Verizon for testing, which can very well take a couple of months.
