HTC: Android Ice Cream Sandwich Update Coming to Sensation, Rezound, Vivid, and EVO Design 4G Smartphones

Ever since Google revealed that Android's latest update, Ice Cream Sandwich, was ready for the world, a very big question has silently hung in the air: which existing Android phones will be upgraded to the new OS?
