Uh-oh. Looks like HTC Desire HD owners still waiting on the sidelines for Android Ice Cream Sandwich may have been hung out to dry, amid confirmation that it has been axed by Canadian network Telus.
HTC said back in February that an ETA for the now semi-latest iteration of Google’s OS, which is soon to be superseded by Jelly Bean, was going to be announced in a matter of weeks. However, it’s not been heard of since and now Telus has refreshed its OS upgrade schedule, which reveals the update has been canned for good, with no expected release date.
While it doesn’t necessarily mean it’s not coming anywhere, ever, HTC’s track record at making U-turns on update promises hardly fills us with confidence.
Even though the Desire HD is two years old, making it a true pensioner in the smartphone terms, it’s certainly not the case that it is under-equipped to handle the update. Handsets with lower specs have received it, which makes us wonder why it’s taking the HD so long.
We’ll be contacting HTC for more information and will let you know what they have to say.
