Last week I opened this post concerning the release of the final ICS release, this post got a lot of exposure on some blogs and sites, and also the HTC facebook page, thanks to this, two HTC employees contacted me, one person very high up in the UK, and also someone in the USA as well.
What was said, is, sort of what the memos that I seen were true, but there is still very many bugs in the firmwares, reported by users, reps, employees, there is still going to be at least another beta release, which will be around the 26th Jan (my date that I said), HTC do actively watch forums like XDA, Modaco etc to see users reactions, and how the developers mend and correct the bugs.
The dates for the Final UK releases should be between End Jan-Start March 2012, In this time, the developers in Taiwan, the Developers in USA, testers etc will finish the final version.
People who have sim-free and 'vanilla' phones will get the update first, operator also get a version, and they can customise as they do, and do in-house testing, US networks will push out the update the same time as the UK networks.
The Final HTC ICS UPDATE will contain :
*ICS Music Player, Browser, New Style Settings
*FaceUnlock and Much More.
Sense 4.0 may, I was told, be coming to Sensations, Its going to be the future UI of HTC phones in the future.
Not much more to add, so this post is now being closed, If you want, Private message me, and we can talk more, but please, no flaming or abuse, otherwise you will be reported. Thank you!
