Continuing the long string of updates being released today, the HTC EVO Design 4G, one of Sprint's mid-level EVO devices, is getting bumped up to Ice Cream Sandwich. The notes don't specify which version of Sense the device will be updated to. One might expect Sense 4.0, though we have seen some devices running Android 4.0, yet still carrying Sense 3.6. So, we'll see.2012-07-31_13h58_31

We had previously heard that both the EVO Design 4G and the EVO 3D would be on schedule to receive ICS by "early August," so it looks like Sprint is actually just a smidge ahead of schedule. Although, since the update is rolling out in stages, you can probably expect it to hit your device right on time. I'll leave you to relentlessly press that "Check for Updates" button now.

    Man, I really hope my Thunderbolt gets ICS by the end of August like HTC promised, since they dropped the Desire HD due to the way it is partitioned.

      Me too. But, I fear it will not happen.

        All there needs to be is a simple leak so that way the devs over at XDA can cook up a solid ROM with everything working.

      I wouldn't hold your breath as the Desire S was meant to get ICS before the end of July and it still hasn't!

    "The update stops short of all the fun stuff Jelly Bean has to offer..."

    Yeah, that's probably because it's not Jelly Bean. ¬_¬

    Glad to see my Sprint friends getting this update. It was funny to see The Evo 3d on Virgin mobile with ICS and the Evo design 4g on Boost with ICS. Glad sprint did the right thing...

    it would be great if this update helps with EVO4G ICS development...but i doubt it will.

    I HATE the ICS upgrade for my HTC Evo Design 4G. Takes forever to open baseline apps. Battery usage is horrible. Give me back Gingerbread
