    Tradition.
    Remember, HTC drove a lot of the innovation of the 2.x builds of Android, especially with the keyboard.

    They can't just drop it all at once, but Sense no longer does the backups.

    I'm new to the 3d, but I thought HTC never announced the 3d will officially get ICS. If that's the case, then you're never going to see a leak because they're not working on it. Best you can hope for is a port of the Evo design to hopefully give you ICS and working 4g (no 3d camera support though- and it's a single core device- so would a ported rom from that work?)

    HTC announced a long time ago that the evo 3d was getting the update. Actually Feb. 9 was when they officially announced it.

    I swear - it seems like they are just teasing us every time they "announce" it..

    I stand corrected! Thanks for that.

    Yay...(waves flag) so uh- yeah where's our leak? LOL.

    If we get what the ATT Vivid gets I'd be very happy. Sprint and HTC have been good historically about updates - the Evo 4g was on of the 1st phones to get GB... I'm sure Sprint is baking in their amount of bloat and then testing 4g etc. I also think based on the late delivery of ICS for the Nexus S we may have to wait till the EVOLTE launch or pretty darn close to it before we see even a leak of ICS for the 3d.

    So, I wonder what Sprint declaring that the Evo 3D has reached end of life and removing it from their website bodes for us.

    Stop your whinning we are getting ICS. Just because Sprint is no longer selling it on their website does not mean that all of a sudden we are not getting update. It's been confirmed for a long time now that evo 3d is getting ICS.

    Well I'm running zr3d gt 2.4 with the non ending arsenal of anthrax kernels, and honestly ics doesn't really matter anymore because this Rom is sick and this kernel is even sicker! And performance wise ics couldn't come close.

    It varies from kernel to kernel! The last test 1858 seems rather good on battery life. I usually can get between 9-12 hours at 1782 MHz on prior versions.

    Dodava's kernel is really a great all around kernel. My recommended kernel as of the moment.

    Seriously people, we're not going to see stock ICS for the CDMA Evo 3D until after the Evo 4G LTE comes out.

    I'm in one of the first cities that will get Sprint's LTE and I'll be fine with my Evo 3D once it gets the ICS update.

    This is the main reason Sprint is holding the update back. If I got ICS on my Evo 3D right now, what motivation would I have to go pick up a Evo 4G LTE?
    And this is also the reason for the discontinuation of the Evo 3D.

    Plainly put, the Evo 4G LTE has to come out before we get the update.
    In the meantime, here's some shots that can make your 3D feel ICS like.

    This was what my first 3D looked like before I took my OtterBox Defender case off, and dropped it.

    I'm probably going to use the same setup once ICS gets on this new stock 3D.

    ^^^^ Not necessarily true. The GB update was pushed to the OG EVO after the 3D was announced but before it was released. I don't think that the reason for discontinuing the 3D is strictly because the new EVO is coming, either. I think the 3D didn't sell nearly as much as Sprint thought it would. If it were simply a matter of retiring the previous model when the new one comes out then the OG EVO would have been done nearly a year ago as well. And I can think of lots of reasons to upgrade, and none of them have anything to do with getting ICS: bigger battery, faster processor, more efficient processor, more memory, bigger screen, better screen, better camera, HD Voice (if it can go mainstream).

    I wholeheartedly disagree.

    Sprint isn't targeting the Evo 4G LTE to Evo 3D users. They are targeting it to the hundreds of thousands OG Evo users that are about to come off their contracts this summer. The Evo 4G was a runaway hit, and LOTS of people still use it. Most of those people will have an upgrade this summer, and trust me they won't be upgrading to the 3D.

    Don't get me wrong, I'm sure the End of Life of the Evo 3D is related, but not from a customer perspective. They are stopping production on the Evo 3D so that HTC can focus on making as many Evo LTE's as possible. I don't think it will affect their ICS rollout at all.

    The 3D still appeals to people who want a NEW high end dual core, 4G phone that works in their market (however hit or miss WiMax is) that will have Android 4.0. The Evo 4G LTE doesn't appeal to me in the slightest. Too many negatives, the biggest of which is no 4G in my area for another year/year and a half.

    Sense 4.0 still has issues, not big enough of a change
    Missing menu key, but 3 other hard keys makes it awkward
    It's really ugly, what's with that glossy black? I support sprint for keeping unlimited data and trust me, I take full advantage, but they took a beautiful phone and totally ruined it. I can't support that. My 3D works, no reason to upgrade unless i'm 100% satisfied with a phone, and this phone isn't it.

    Not another data fee, but they are bumping the TEP up to $11.
