With the ever-growing range of Android smartphones and tablets flooding the market, it can be confusing to work out if your pride and joy can be updated to the latest firmware, Ice Cream Sandwich.


Thankfully, HTC has released a complete list of all hardware that can be updated to the latest and greatest that Google's Android OS has to offer.

In all, 17 devices made the cut and are eligible for the update, which will arrive anytime between now and the end of August.

The list of devices that will soon get Android Ice Cream Sandwich is as follows:

  • DROID Incredible 2 - End of August
  • HTC Amaze 4G - May-June
  • HTC Desire S - June-July
  • HTC Desire HD - July-August
  • HTC Evo 3D - June-July
  • HTC Evo 4G+ - May-June
  • HTC Evo Design 4G - June-July
  • HTC Incredible S - June-July
  • HTC Sensation - March-June
  • HTC Sensation 4G - March-June
  • HTC Sensation XE - March-June
  • HTC Sensation XL - April-June
  • HTC Rezound - June-July
  • HTC Rhyme - June-July
  • HTC Thunderbolt - July-August
  • HTC Velocity 4G - March-June
  • HTC Vivid - March-June

It's an extensive list and will no doubt make owners of slightly older HTC hardware, like the Desire S, happy to get essentially the same operating system as the new HTC One X, S and V, which we reviewed here, here and here.

Phones that failed to make the cut are those with 512MB of RAM or less; this includes the ChaCha, Salsa, Wildfire and Explorer, among others.

HTC also notes that the Flyer, Evo View 4G and Jetstream will remain on their Honeycomb builds of Android.

HTC reminds users that, while the updates to Android 4 have estimated dates for each handset, "Due to localization, testing, and partner approvals, updates do not roll out to all devices at the same time.

"For devices on a wide variety of carriers and in many countries, rollouts can take up to 45 days from the initial update to reach everyone."
