HTC have confirmed ICS to come to the HTC Desire S

I’ve actually known about this for a couple of weeks, but since my screenshot guide for the Desire S is easily the most viewed blogpost, I thought I’d put a link up for HTC’s announcement.

The only date mentioned is ‘later this year’, but I’ve heard a few rumours that we’ll be looking at a couple of months before release.

Other older phones mentioned are the EVO 3D, Incredible S and Desire HD.

Taking screenshots on an HTC Desire S

If anyone out there has an HTC Desire S and wants to take screenshots on it without going to the effort of rooting the phone, this should work for you.

As far as I know, your phone needs to be on at least Android 2.3.5 and have HTC Sense 3.0 (I’ve only had this since the last update – not sure if it’s the android or sense  update that has given me the ability to take screenshots)

For UK based Desire S phones on O2, you should be able to update your phone to the required level. Other networks may vary though.

To take the screenshot, press the power button.While the power button  is pressed, click the Home button (furthest left touch button). You’ll hear the camera click, and the screenshot will be in your gallery.

I’ve added one of mine below to show it can be done. I think this will work on the Sensation as well as the OS is pretty much the same…
