Post [Theory] Desire HD getting official ICS

Okay its already been confirmed that the desire HD will be receiving Ice Cream Sandwich soon. Here is the thread : http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=1488915 . I came across a article on cnet that possible dates for HTC's Sensation 4G and Amaze 4G which is June 16th. Here is the article: http://news.cnet.com/8301-1035_3-574...?tag=txt;title . So what I think is that if those phone are receiving the wonderful ICS at that time, So should Desire HD. Now this is all based on theory but We are that much closer.

If this thread is a waste of time feel free to say so, cause I'm new at this. The last thing I need is a bad rep. BUT LIKE I SAID THIS IS ALL THEORY. NOT OFFICIAL

I bid farewell and I love this community.

What i mean is that a number of HTC devices are receiving ICS soon. In theory like I said, since a bundle of devices are getting ICS, so should Desire HD. I'm not saying that we will be getting it at the same time but HTC seems to be giving ICS around that time. So we might be getting ICS very soon. ALL THIS IS THEORY LIKE I SAID. :3

I doubt HTC are in Any Rush, The Phone has had It's day, even the development is dead on it, and many people are moving on to Newer phones, But it will probably be June or July time.

Reading the cnet link that you have shared, i think they are pertaining to those devices that aare locked (branded) with T-Mobile. Unbranded/unlocked devices always receive the updates first than the branded ones. So if the target dates are right and your theory is also correct, I would say that the unbranded devices will be recieving the updates a month or weeks earlier than june 16..

Well from all the comments shown, the predictions are pointed towards this summer. Summer is just a blink away, I'm sure it will come soon. Cause HTC is all about customer satisfaction. HOHOHOHOHOHOH

I also think it will come in the next weeks, HTC's last act for our tremendous DHD.
Hope they want to cross that task from their ToDo early...
