It's been about seven months since the all-but-forgotten EVO 3D saw its last over-the-air update, which brought Android 4.0 to the handset. Sprint hasn't given up on the 3D oddity just yet, however – a small update will begin making its way to the device beginning on February 21st.

It will bring build 2.95.615.4, and include a couple of small fixes and one lone "enhancement:"

Enhancements

  • Sprint Connection Optimizer

Fixes

  • AVI Files unable to stream or play via DLNA
  • Launching Messaging app loading time

Yeah, it's not very exciting.

If you bought a pre-LTE Evo phone in the last year and you've been feeling left out in the cold, worry not. Sprint and HTC are in the process of bringing Ice Cream Sandwich to your device. If your device happens to be an Evo 3D or Evo Design, that is. The older flagship Evo and this year's midrange phone are slated to reach Android 4.0 sometime in August.

Yes, we know that once again, it's not Jelly Bean.

Owners of unlocked versions of HTC's EVO 3D are starting to see the Ice Cream Sandwich update roll out across the globe; we've already seen reports of users receiving the update in Germany, Netherlands, Italy, the UK, and more.

The OTA update brings Android 4.0.3 and Sense 3.6 to the other-dimensional handset, but if you just can't stand the wait, XDA user AcerExtensa has pulled the update file and included instructions on how to flash it without updating hboot.

2011 was a great year for Android - Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich was announced. The Galaxy Nexus was released. A whole truckload of Android tablets came out. The first 4G LTE smartphones appeared. But there were some significant speed bumps as well. Here are, in no particular order, the five things in the world of Android in the last year that really got our hopes up, but ended up being a little disappointing.

Developer bponury, the mind behind WifiKill and FaceNiff, has created something that looks pretty awesome, if you're the owner of a GSM-enabled HTC Evo 3D. That something is the Slide 2 Wake kernel, which allows you to wake and lock your device by sliding a finger across your Evo 3D's capacitive buttons. The kernel is still in its very early stages, but seems to perform quite well.

While the kernel is only running on one very specific device for now, there is hope for at least a port to the CDMA variant of the 3D, and perhaps other devices with capacitive buttons as well.

Yesterday I reviewed one of the most full-featured (and full-priced) EVO 3D cases currently available: Trident's Kraken Adaptive Modular System. If you can afford it, it's a great choice, even if it may be a bit on the hefty side (I recommend applying only the middle part of the case, the "Perseus" layer).

For construction workers, hikers, and other outdoorsy types, it's a dream come true. And even if your job doesn't demand the kind of rough-and-tough case that can withstand anything from a roundhouse kick to a good ol' drop on cement, it wouldn't hurt to win a $45 case for free, would it?

HTC's UK Facebook page was updated last night with information regarding just which HTC handsets would be in the "first wave" of phones to receive an update to Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich in early 2012. While the post was made on HTC's UK Facebook, the list contains a number of US-only devices. Those handsets are asterisked to indicate US-only availability (the Rezound, EVO Design, and Amaze). The others on the list include the Sensation (plus XL and XE versions), the Vivid, and the EVO 3D.
