Well, this is a bit of a farce. Last week, Canadian network Telus said it had scrapped plans to bring Ice Cream Sandwich (Android 4.0) to the good old HTC Desire HD.
An HTC spokesperson quickly moved to stress that the manufacturer’s Desire HD Ice Cream Sandwich plans were “still on schedule”, but now… I’m sure you can see where this is going.
It’s been an emotional rollercoaster, with dazzling highs and crushing lows, and HTC has officially settled on the latter. You sadistic sonsof...
The latest HTC statement reads: “After extensive testing, we’ve determined that the current version of HTC Sense with Android provides customers with the best experience on the HTC Desire HD.
“When we consider new versions of software, we weigh a number of factors, but ultimately the customer experience on the product is the deciding factor. We apologize for any confusion this change may have caused our customers.”
To be fair, even if it’s just HTC being lazy, the Desire HD is getting on a bit now (two years old in October). There can’t be that many people still rocking an HTC Desire HD who are that bothered about the lack of Ice Cream Sandwich. And hey, that's coming from a guy with an HTC Desire HD.
