Sprint announced today via their Community Forums that the Evo Design 4G and Evo 3D are scheduled to get updated to ICS this August. We are not too sure on the details of the update but one has to assume most of the goodies from ICS should be coming over with HTC’s heavy skin which may possibly be Sense 3.6 instead of Sense 4.0 on current high end HTC devices.
Of course as soon as I find out more about the update I will be sure to let you know!! No word yet on the original Evo 4G or the Evo Shift 4G.
