HTC confirms HTC Desire HD and Desire S Ice Cream Sandwich upgrades are on schedule
A few days ago, there was a bit of a scare when an image of Telus’ Android update schedule hit the web, claiming that the Android 4.0 update for the HTC Desire HD has been scrapped due to poor performance. Android blogs across the web bolted out the door with titles like “HTC breaks its promise – cancels HTC Desire HD ICS update” and “HTC Desire HD Android 4.0 update cancelled due to performance issues.” Since we knew there had to be more to the story, we reported exactly what the information suggested: the Android 4.0 update for the Telus HTC Desire HD was cancelled due to performance issues – nothing more.
To clarify the situation, we reached out to several of our contact at HTC. We finally heard back from them late last night with the following statement:
[quote]We remain committed to providing customers with the latest software updates when possible. As such, we are pleased to confirm we are still on schedule to deliver an Ice Cream Sandwich upgrade for both the HTC Desire HD and Desire S.[/quote]
According to HTC’s official Android 4.0 update schedule, the Desire HD should receive its Android 4.0 update by the end of August while the Desire S should be seeing its update roll out in the next few weeks.
