Could the HTC EVO View 4G officially see Ice Cream Sandwich after all?

To be on the safe side, it's probably best to take this with the largest grain of salt you can find. According to French website HTC Hub, a customer service rep from HTC recently confirmed that the HTC Flyer would be getting an upgrade to Ice Cream Sandwich in the first quarter of this year. This, of course, leaves open the possibility that the HTC EVO View 4G, the WiMAX-enabled twin of the HTC Flyer, might also get bumped up to Android 4.0.

Apparently, after complaining about the loss of some functionality after the Honeycomb update, a rep from HTC replied to a disgruntled Flyer owner by stating that he could send his tablet back to HTC and have it downgraded back to Gingerbread. Or, alternately, he could wait until the Ice Cream Sandwich update became available later this year.

Of course, all of this is still unconfirmed until we hear something official from HTC. But it certainly gives us hope that maybe, just maybe, the EVO View might not be as dead as we'd thought.
