Amaze 4G | HTC
HTC's latest Android 4.0 upgrade roadmap includes Droid Incredible 2 by August, Evo 3D in June / July
It's been a long time coming, but HTC is finally putting getting around to widely rolling out Android 4.0 to supported handsets. Following news of updates for the Sensation 4G and Amaze 4G on T-Mobile last week, HTC has posted an in-depth guide to when most of its handsets will be upgraded.
We've heard that T-Mobile's HTC Sensation 4G would get an upgrade to Ice Cream Sandwich "very soon," and now the carrier has announced that the software update will start rolling out on May 16th.
TmoNews has uncovered a purported internal document which lists Android 4.0 upgrade dates for last year's flagship models, as well as upcoming devices.

HTC says that the Sensation, Sensation 4G, Sensation XE, and Sensation XL will receive the upgrade in March, but owners of the Rezound, Vivid, Amaze 4G, Evo 3D, Evo Design 4G, Incredible S, Desire S, and Desire HD will have to wait longer than previously thought.
T-Mobile has now responded to a request for information from US Senator Al Franken on how it makes use of Carrier IQ's many performance logging capabilities.
The Amaze 4G on T-Mobile isn't the only handset to gain Wi-Fi calling. Yesterday T-Mobile released an update for the Samsung Galaxy S II that adds the feature along with bugfixes to improve battery life and Caller ID. It's available now as an over-the-air update.
An alleged internal T-Mobile document has revealed which of the carrier's phones are using the controversial Carrier IQ tracking software.
HTC has just revealed the first smartphones in its Android portfolio to receive an upgrade to Ice Cream Sandwich. These include the Sensation family, the Evo 3D and Evo Design 4G, and the more recent Amaze 4G and Rezound.
A leaked a photo of a document intended for Telus sales representatives says that the Canadian carrier will announce the Amaze 4G tomorrow, with prices ranging from $99.99 Canadian on a three year contract to $599.99 contract-free.
Leaked photos of a mysterious HTC device running Android 2.3 line up with the Ruby, which may be called the Amaze 4G for T-Mobile. It's got a 4.3-inch, 960 x 540 qHD display, 8-megapixel camera with dual LED flash, and a 1.5GHz dual-core CPU. The phone also has 1GB of RAM inside, as well as 16GB of storage.
Both the Amaze 4G and Galaxy S II support 42Mbps downloads on T-Mobile's HSPA+ network and 1.5GHz Snapdragon S3 processors, but the Amaze has a f/2.2 backside illuminated camera and two dedicated hardware buttons for taking photos or video. The Galaxy S II has a 4.5-inch Super AMOLED Plus screen and lacks the hardware buttons of the Amaze.
