Ice Cream Sandwich: HTC Thunderbolt, Rhyme, Droid Incredible 2 and Raider

HTC is bringing some very good news to its fans, as the manufacturer has recently announced on its Facebook page that a new series of smartphones is eligible for an Ice Cream Sandwich update.

We’re talking about the HTC Thunderbolt, HTC Rhyme, Droid Incredible 2 and also the HTC Raider, devices that we weren’t sure that they will receive some official ICS love. And since HTC announced fairly recent that devices like HTC Vivid, Incredible S, Desire S and Desire HD will get updated to Android 4 we feared that the manufacturer’s slightly older single-core devices have been forgotten.

This is very good, especially for the HTC Thunderbolt, which had a hard time getting upgraded to Gingerbread and a lot of people were afraid that the HTC Thunderbolt Ice Cream Sandwich update would be a long way should history repeat itself. Fortunately, this is not the case anymore.

It’s also a cool thing that the HTC Raider Android 4 ICS upgrade was put on the list, as its Canadian owners were surely waiting for this good piece of news.

The HTC Thunderbolt Android 4 upgrade will take place later this year, along with the HTC Droid Incredible 2 and the above devices. We’ll be digging for more info.

Next month we’re expecting to see Ice Cream Sandwich rolling out to some of HTC’s international handsets (OG Sensation, HTC Sensation XE and XL) and we’ll also expect to hear more about further plans for getting ICS to other devices from HTC.
