Sprint’s HTC Evo 3D and Evo Design will get Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich “by early August”

If you’re the proud owner of either Sprint’s HTC Evo 3D or the Evo Design, here’s some good news for you. In just a few weeks, your device (whichever of the two you happen to have) will get upgraded to Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich. The word comes via an official announcement from the carrier.

The update will apparently start rolling out “by early August”. A more exact timeline isn’t available at the moment, but we’ll keep you posted.

Of course the update will come over-the-air. So your phone will notify you once it’s there waiting for you to download and install it.

Unfortunately for you, a newer version of Android is already out. And there’s no word on whether the Evo 3D or Evo Design will ever get to run Jelly Bean. Don’t get your hopes up. Although hardware that can run ICS surely can run JB too, Sprint and HTC have to think about this from another point of view. And the truth is, they’ll probably decide that selling you a fancy new device will be the way to go. We’ll see.

    It is clear about Sprint’s intent to have you buy a new phone, as evidenced with the release of ICS for the SII.
    Thank you for all your loyalty and “customer care” and only a month or 2
    later than when you originally announced, and 2 months after the rest
    of the world got it. It feels like I am in a relationship I know is not
    going anywhere, but I haven’t had the heart to break it off yet. I
    don’t know how these people get to be the managers of divisions that
    decide this stuff, but but what in incompetent, inept, inexperienced
    group to arrive at this type of marketing ploy. I feel the marketing is
    being run by a bunch of high school interns with no real world wisdom,
    ability, or experience in how to sell. “um, I got an idea, lets force
    them….then they will have to buy and profits will shoot up.” Here’s a
    little piece of wisdom for all you super-duper marketing gurus which
    you missed in your online degree program….two words: Relationship and
    Retention. Marketing with any other focus is just a one night stand. If that is your marketing direction, just don’t use contradictory words in your tagline. Loyalty means being with the same wireless provider since 2006 (me), not seeing how far you can strain the relationship before people start throwing in the towel.
