that there is a double edge sword...if they miss the dates they initially project and tell everyone, they will NEVER hear the end of it...So many things can happen that could cause an update to get delayed and missing a date is something companies in general do not like doing...

True, but they can always update on their progress without giving us a concrete ETA.

Like "Hey, the rom is in testing right now, we hit a snag so it's going to be a bit longer, but we're working on it!" instead of "Hey, it's coming out sometime in Spring and we are going to give you the bare minimum of information on the update."

It's one thing to keep the eta under wraps because idiots on the internet will bitch endlessly when it isn't hit, it's another thing to give us virtually no info aside from "it's coming out" and expect us not to wonder what's going on.

Exactly what Cityeyes meant. Sorry for being a bit vague. Anyhow yes I just wish they'd let us know what was up with their development to reassure the slightly paranoid users that they ARE working on it; no need for specific ETA's (developers and modders on XDA hate when people ask, why shouldn't they?). It just ruins a customer expierence when you have to send an email, or pester on Twitter to receive an answer like "Coming soon"

Not sure if anyone saw this on Engadget. It's outlining T-Mobile's ICS roll-out. Sensation and Amaze both getting the update on June 16th.

If T-Mobile is doing rollouts for the Sensation on June 16th (far past HTC's "March" release schedule) then I'd assume it would much later (isn't GSM always quicker to update? I could be wrong...).

Now with the nearly complete Sense 4 ROM and Unicorn M5 release, Sense 3.6 update doesn't seem like such a big deal now, save for some camera functionality.

I'm speaking for myself only, I know a lot of people still would like an official ICS update and I agree, but I guess it'll just happen when it does.

GSM typically is....BUT....the CDMA EVO3D was released before it so that might play a factor in the time table some...

Wasn't there a GSM or overseas version of the EVO4G? when did that get the GB update?...
