Back in May, HTC published a list of 17 smartphones which are expected to receive Android 4.0/Ice Cream Sandwich upgrades from Android 2.3.x and today, HTC is keeping another promise by now offering Android 4.0 for its HTC EVO 3D! By far not HTC's most successful Android phone (who was really asking for the 3D camera and screen), HTC said it's planning to offer the upgrade within June and July and here we go, it's now available. According to what we've heard, it's an EMEA-wide rollout and also includes Vodafone. Since it's a fully firmware upgrade,  the Android 4.0.3 upgrade is around 300 MB large but also includes Sense 3.6, HTC's lighter Sense 4 version for upgraded devices which are not part of the One-series.

The HTC EVO 3D should have already found the available upgrade, if not it might be worth to check manually if it's already offered for you, since I would expect that it's a staged upgrade, as always. Also it's recommended, as always, to do a backup first, even if the upgrade hasn't wiped any user data, like photos, on my test device.

Cheers ~ Arne
