AT&T has announced that its HTC Vivid will be receiving an upgrade to Android 4.0 and Beats Audio "in the coming weeks."

The most exciting announcement for AT&T today has been the One X, but let's remember that it's not the first LTE-enabled HTC device to hit the carrier — that title would go to last year's Vivid, and owners have cause to celebrate this afternoon. Buried within the One X's press release, AT&T has announced that the Vivid will be getting Android 4.0, an "updated Sense experience" (presumably based on the new Sense 4), and Beats Audio profiles "in the coming weeks." Of course, the retrofitting of Beats Audio underscores the fact that the technology is more of a graphic equalizer setting than any sort of specific circuitry, but considering that HTC has now figured out to get it working with all audio apps that you've got installed, some users might appreciate the bass boost.
