At HTC’s (2498) Rezound press event in November, the Taiwanese manufacturer noted that its latest smartphone was Ice Cream Sandwich ready and would receive an update in a timely manner. This was not the case, however, and the Rezound spent more than eight months running Gingerbread. Verizon Wireless (VZ) and HTC on Thursday finally announced an over-the-air update for the handset that will bring it up to Android 4.0.3 and Sense 3.6. The update includes all of the goodies from Ice Cream Sandwich such Face Unlock, swipeable notifications, data monitoring and improved multitasking, and will also deliver a redesigned home screen with a customizable Launch Bar. The Android 4.0.3 update for the HTC Rezound is rolling out to handsets now.
