Android Ice Cream Sandwich rollout is go for HTC Evo 3D

HTC has begun rolling out Android 4.0, A.K.A Ice Cream Sandwich (ICS) for the HTC Evo 3D, giving the year-old smartphone a fresh lease of life.

The phone-manufacturer is making the update, which brings some smart new features to the handset, available initially to owners in Europe, Africa and the Middle East.

As it stands, however, ICS is only up for grabs if you've got an unlocked Evo 3D. Owners of network-branded models will have to wait until it passes through testing with individual carriers. And as experience tells us, that could take months.

Features it adds to the handset aren’t yet confirmed. But potential additions take in the rather specious Face Unlock security feature that uses the front-facing camera to scan would-be users’ faces and will only become unlocked for the owner. Or at least, that's the theory.

Also likely to make the transition to the Evo 3D are a range of user interface tweaks and enhanced multi-tasking.
