Ice Cream Sandwich melting over the Australian airwaves – headed to the HTC Velocity
HTC certainly has the ball rolling with Google’s latest version of Android, Ice Cream Sandwich and hopefully they will gain more momentum as the month draws on. Just last week users on the other end of the globe were reporting the HTC Sensation and HTC Sensation XE were receiving the update, now customers on the Telstra network in Australia are rejoicing over the update to their HTC Velocity. The HTC Velocity is better known in North America as the HTC Vivid on AT&T or the HTC Raider on Bell and Rogers and is one of the last devices HTC produced in 2011. It comes packed with a 1.2 GHz dual-core processor, 1 GB of RAM, 4.5″ SLCD screen, 8 MP camera, and 16 GB of internal memory.
The Android 4.0 build for this model was was leaked at the beginning of the month and things are looking to be on par between the leaked and official versions. The HTC Sense user interface is updated to version 3.6 from 3.5 and is supposed to include Beats Audio sound profiles which have been baked further into the Android operating system to work with more media applications other than the default music player.
With the HTC Sensation and HTC Velocity receiving the new Android 4.0 update, which HTC device will be marked off the checklist next? Which device will be the first in the US to see a little Ice Cream Sandwich action and how soon would you expect to see it pushed out?
