If you happen to own the href=”http://now.sprint.com/firsts/evo4g” rel=”homepage” target=”_blank” title=”HTC Evo 4G”>HTC EVO 4G and HTc EVO Design 4G from href=”http://www.sprint.com/” rel=”homepage” target=”_blank” title=”Sprint Nextel”>Sprint, then you will be pleased to hear that the mobile carrier has introduced software updates to both smartphones. Too bad the software update will not be as tasty as that of the Ice Cream Sandwich variety, but they will comprise system tweaks that ensure a greater degree of security, an updated Peep client and you should be able to experience a prolonged battery life compared to what you normally get. The updates will be delivered in stages via Over The Air (OTA) on January 24, although the impatient among you can opt to trigger the update manually from yesterday onwards, by pressing Menu > Settings > System updates > href=”http://www.htc.com/” rel=”homepage” target=”_blank” title=”HTC”>HTC software update.
For those who have already applied the update, just what kind of positive changes have you seen, and did you notice any changes in system performance (hopefully for the better)? No idea on when the official Ice Cream Sandwich update will arrive for both handsets, if ever, but should the HTC EVO 4G reach the end of the road with href=”http://code.google.com/android/” rel=”homepage” target=”_blank” title=”Android”>Android 2.3 Gingerbread, we will try not to act too surprised considering the age of the smartphone.
