AT&T begins Android 4.0 upgrades with HTC Vivid

Ten more devices to get ICS in 2012

TechRadar rating:

3.5 stars

The HTC Sensation XL is a good phone, no doubt, but it doesn't live up to the lofty standards of its Sensation name.


Bright, clear screen; Good stills camera; HTC Sense 3.5; Great audio quality with Beats; Comfortable to use despite its size;


Some performance issues; Lower-specced than its brothers; More expensive than its brothers; No microSD card slot; Terrible video quality;

AT&T has furnished the HTC Vivid with Android Ice Cream Sandwich, the first of its fleet to be graced with the latest version of the software.

The carrier says the 4.5-inch, dual-core Vivid is the first of ten smartphones and tablets to be re-equipped with Android 4.0 during 2012.

The update to the Sense 3.6-toting, 4G LTE device is available to download over Wi-Fi or can be side-loaded from your PC.

The rest of the pack

Among the other AT&T devices in-line for the upgrade are five Samsung devices; the Galaxy S2, Galaxy S2 Skyrocket, Galaxy Note, Galaxy Tab 8.9 and Captivate Glide.

The Motorola Atrix and its sequel the Atrix 2 will also be receiving Ice Cream Sandwich at some stage, along with the LG Nitro.

The little-known Pantech Burst and Pantech Element devices complete the line-up.

AT&T has not specified dates for the roll-out.
