German HTC news site HTCinside is reporting that some users of the HTC Sensation and Sensation XE in Germany have started to receive notifications for the official Android 4.0 update, Ice Cream sandwich (ICS).
The update delivers Android 4.0 and Sense 3.6 to these two handsets in a 283MB download and finally gives hope to Sensation users around Europe that the ICS loveliness is finally ready and should be pushed out before the end of March as promised by HTC. That’s quite a download for OTA on a data plan so it’s better (and usually faster!) to complete the update over Wi-Fi wherever possible.
If you’re a typical Sensation user in the UK, no doubt you’ve been checking for updates on your phone for a couple of weeks now without anything to show. When an update is available in your area you will get a notification as long as you have a Scheduled Check enabled in your phone’s settings:
Menu > Settings > About Phone > Software Updates > tick “Scheduled Check”
There’s also the option to “Check Now” for everyone who can’t wait for the notification.
