HTC stalls some Android 4 updates despite vows

HTC had to backtrack on upgrade promises Thursday with a follow-up posting delaying most. Only the Sensation, Sensation 4G, and Sensation XE will get the new OS by the end of March. The Sensation XL would come soon afterwards, but the Amaze 4G, Desire HD, Desire S, Evo 3D, Evo Design 4G, Incredible S, Rezound, and Vivid would only get updates "later this year."

More details were expected in "coming weeks," HTC said.

The delay suggests that, despite changes to the new OS and promises of quick upgrades under an alliance, Android 4.0 updates wouldn't be timely and would only be coming a year or more after the devices shipped. Some US variant phones that should technically be capable of Android 4.0, such as the Droid Incredible 2, Inspire 4G, and Thunderbolt, also weren't mentioned.

Motorola and Samsung have hinted that a few of their phones will get the upgrade, although some will have to wait until spring.
