AT&T rolls out Android 4.0 to HTC Vivid, other devices getting ICS in the ‘coming months’
Be still our beating heart. Just two weeks ago we heard Android 4.0 — that upgrade lovingly referred to as Ice Cream Sandwich — would be reaching the HTC Vivid “in the coming weeks.” We even saw the update trickle in to select devices last week without any official notice from the mother ship. AT&T’s finally ready to open the floodgates and pour the refresh out to the masses. This download in particular includes Sense 3.6, but throws in third-party Beats Audio support — a feature that until now has only been seen in version 4.0. If you’re packing a Vivid, just make sure you’re hooked up to WiFi and head to the settings to get your download on. If it doesn’t find the update yet, you also have the option to sideload it from your computer.
In the same breath, AT&T also made it known that it’s still hard at work readying ICS for several other devices, and we can expect the updates to arrive “in the coming months.” There aren’t any surprises on the list of candidates: the Motorola Atrix 4G and Atrix 2, Pantech Burst and Element and the LG Nitro are all there, as well as a litany of Samsung devices like the Note, Galaxy S II, Skyrocket, Captivate Glide and Galaxy Tab 8.9. There’s no more information yet, so the lucky owners of each one will just have to remain waiting on pins and needles for yet another undetermined number of months. Find the press release underneath.
