[Update: Maybe Not] HTC Customer Support Seems To Confirm Ice Cream Sandwich Update For MyTouch 4G In Early 2012

Although it wasn't among the select few HTC devices confirmed to be receiving Ice Cream Sandwich, we have reasons to believe that T-Mobile's myTouch 4G will indeed be receiving the update in early 2012, according to an HTC customer support representative. Here's the original message:

First I want to thank you for the amazing job you've done building and maintaining my phone.  It's my favorite phone I've ever owned by far.  I'm incredibly excited for android 4.0 (Ice cream sandwich) and am really hoping for the update to come to the T-mobile mytouch 4g.  I absolutely love the phone and don't want to replace it with another.  I'm emailing to request that the T-mobile mytouch 4g be put on the forefront of update candidates.  Thank you again.
