First things first, no this is not Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich. We do have some decent news though and that is the T-Mobile HTC myTouch 4G and myTouch 4G Slide smartphones are getting an over the air update this week, and users should be getting it any time now. This doesn’t update to the latest OS but does bring plenty of fixes and improvement so stay tuned for more details.
According to T-Mobile, both devices will be getting updates with the original myTouch 4G up first and available as of yesterday. So it’s possible the update is ready for you now or will be landing any time now. As usual users can manually check for updates to get the latest version themselves. T-Mobile mentions that the myTouch 4G Slide however, will start seeing the OTA update arrive on March 19th, and should arrive for all devices by the end of the month.
The what’s new list is quite vague but it appears users can expect to see performance updates and enhancements, Google security fixes, then improvements to WiFi calling, the genius button, and Netflix streaming. A new and improved version of the popular 3rd party keyboard Swype also comes pre-installed too. As usual the updates should arrive shortly or manually give it a go by heading to Menu > Settings > About Phone > HTC software updates > Check now.
Let us know when you receive the updates, and if you run into any problems. For rooted users give OTA Rootkeeper a try from the Google Play Store. All the details on both updates can be found from the two via links below direct from T-Mobile.
