HTC Vivid 4G LTE smartphone over on AT&T may have a tasty frozen treat waiting for them today. Yes this is the official Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich update with the new HTC Sense UI 3.6 experience. Sadly AT&T has announced that the update is not, i repeat NOT rolling out, although multiple users have received it and a little trick will get you the update today. No hacking or root required.
Samsung Galaxy S II owners in continental Europe and South Korea are getting their updates. The update includes HTC Sense 4.0 that's found on the new HTC One series, though it's reportedly significantly faster than the previous 3.5 build on the Velocity.

HTC Vivid and previous leaks (even down under) had it titled the HTC Holiday. This 4.5" screen packing LTE smartphone is headed to Telstra and according to HTC is "coming soon".
Evo View 4G and the MyTouch 4G Slide. That's true. A few users have found that the update also works with AT&T's HTC Vivid and Verizon's HTC Rezound, though those models don't appear anywhere on HTCDev's documentation. Now the company has come right out and said it: all devices released after September of 2011 are unlockable using the official method.
review of the HTC Vivid smartphone. We thought the device was nice with good build quality, but it had a sub-par battery that left some to be desired. If you like that smartphone you might want to get one now. Apparently, HTC has received a cease and desist order from a porn company called Vivid Entertainment.
