Taiwanese phone maker HTC may have diapponted many by not bringing an ICS update on their Inspire 4G / Desire HD smartphone. However, the company has announced recently that the AT&T Inspire 4G users will soon receive an update notification on their device for the UI upgradation for their HTC Inspire smartphone.
At the same time, consumers also have an option to download the RUU direct from the HTC website. As noted on their support site, the update will bring the following new features to your handset as well as some bug fixes and improvements.
- HTC Sense 3.0

- SMS/MMS Thread -- Contact Display Fix
