The vendor might offer OS upgrades to latest devices
Google has just made official a new version of their Android operating system, namely Ice Cream Sandwich, and handset vendors around the world are already considering the delivery of this platform flavor to their customers.Among them, we can count the Taiwanese mobile phone maker HTC Corporation, which has just unveiled some of its plans for the new OS flavor.
To be more precise, the company said that they were still assessing the new platform iteration and the manner in which it will impact the experience of its users.
The handset vendor also announced that they are usually committed to delivering updated to their latest devices as soon as possible, but that nothing has been carved in stone for Ice Cream Sandwich as of yet.
“We are excited about the latest update for Android, Ice Cream Sandwich, and are currently reviewing its features and functionality to determine our upgrade plans,” the mobile phone maker reportedly stated.
“Our goal for Android updates is to give every customer an improved user experience, which means balancing each phone's unique hardware, HTC Sense experience and the Android kernel.
“While our goal is to upgrade as many of our recent devices as possible, we are committed to maintaining every phone's performance and usability first. Please stay tuned for more updates on specific device upgrade plans.”
Chances are that some of the company's latest Android devices will indeed get a taste of the new Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich platform release in the near future, yet it remains to be seen when exactly that might happen.
After all, Google said that Android 2.3 Gingerbread devices might receive an update to the new platform release, but that nothing can be said or certain at the moment.
It seems that HTC users might be among the first to get a taste of the new OS release, but they should be patiently waiting for the vendor to provide more info on the matter.
