EVO 3D and Ice Cream Sandwich
Do you think the 3D will eventual support ice cream sandwich? I am torn between hanging on my Evo 4G, getting a 3D, or waiting longer for the next evolution of the Evo. The 3D effect is a complete gimmick for me. I am more interested in the specs and on going software support. I have zero issues with my EVO 4G and want something newer just because it is already a year old.

With the phone being released in the Summer, and Ice Cream Sandwich estimated to hit 4Q 2011, even if there is not an official release at that time I'm sure the devs will have a ROM for it, just like Gingerbread on the original EVO. if you are going to try and wait for the latest phone to match with the latest software, you will be waiting forever as both change constantly.In Vino Veritas

From what i understand, along with ICS, Google will be tightening down on carriers and manufacturers on getting updates out in a timely manner.
Evo 3D will defiantly get it, og Evo should in theory also, but in the least have nice custom roms to make up for it.

I would bet that anything that is a "high end" phone that has released since the beginning of the year will get it. The 4G might, but I wouldn't put money on it. 3D is probably a lock to be one of the first to get an upgrade because Sprint will want their flagship phone to get updated quick (this is assuming that they don't go the way of Verizon and have a new "flagship" every 3 months)

I do understand that people's needs are different and there are those who look for good enough, instead of latest and greatest and in those cases all bets are off.
Edit: It looks like I may be agreeing with you in full I think I misinterpreted your post the first time around.

I don't really consider it a "Sprint" phone even though it's on Sprint because any updates for it would be pushed out when Google is ready for it and not when Sprint/Samsung feel we should get it.

Here is the big question though, ics is supposed to have the "holographic" UI of honeycomb, right? It's supposed to unite one OS for every form factor, so what will HTC do? Keep sense on it, or let us enjoy the stock Google UI? Granted, we only know what honeycomb looks like on tablets right now, but if ics really gives as the UI from honeycomb, what will HTC do? I guess the honeycomb update to the EVO view (htc flyer tablet) might give us an idea, but it is interesting to note that neither Motorola nor Samsung bother in putting touchwiz or motoblur on their big tablets. Time will tell.

Re: EVO 3D and Ice Cream Sandwich
Just curious if anyone has more info on ICS for the EVO 3D, hope Sprint doesnt slow down the update...Skywalker to Obi-wan: I think he's searching for his former master, but I've never seen such devotion in ANDROID before...
