HTC delays Android 4.0 for Sensation smartphone
News from Inquirer:

TAIWANESE PHONE MAKER HTC has refreshed its Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich (ICS) update schedule, which reflects that owners of Sensation handsets could be waiting longer than expected.

The updated schedule shows that HTC planned to roll out ICS to the Sensation and Sensation XL between March and June, and to the larger-screened Sensation XL between April and June. Since it’s almost June already, HTC is late.

The company has about 100,000 WiMax subscribers, getting download speeds up to 6-8 Mbits/s compared to 500 Kbits/s to 1 Mbit/s for competing 3G cellular services, he said.

The country’s other WiMax provider, Global Mobile Corp. (Taipei), claims it has about 120,000 subscribers and is offering Voice over IP as part of its data plan which it claims delivers even faster rates. Both companies are under the gun to get a bigger slice of Taiwan’s more than 22 million cellular subscribers.

The national communications agency here plans to release its spectrum plan for LTE licenses in the second half of next year, said Lin. Taiwan’s six 3G carriers will try to snap up the LTE licenses to migrate the bulk of today’s 3G users to LTE.
