HTC is one of the biggest seller of Android powered devices and well known for the Sense UI, an overlay to the standard Android user interface. This is the official statement from HTC on their plans for the Ice Cream Sandwich.
“We are excited about the latest update for Android, Ice Cream Sandwich, and are currently reviewing its features and functionality to determine our upgrade plans. Our goal for Android updates is to give every customer an improved user experience, which means balancing each phone’s unique hardware, HTC Sense experience and the Android kernel. While our goal is to upgrade as many of our recent devices as possible, we are committed to maintaining every phone’s performance and usability first. Please stay tuned for more updates on specific device upgrade plans.”
In the next few months we will see some new handphones powered by ICS not only the Galaxy Nexus and expect that HTC will give us some awesome smartphone with ICS on it. Personally I can’t imagine how HTC Sense will change the stock Ice Cream Sandwich UI which looks gorgeous already.
