HTC has brushed aside concerns that Android Ice Cream Sandwich for the Desire HD is no longer coming, stating it is still trying decide if the update is viable.
The Taiwanese phone-maker said back in February that it would disclose more about the update “in the coming weeks”. However, five months later, it hasn’t announced anything, causing many to fear it has been well and truly scrapped.
It didn’t help matters much when Canadian network Telus refreshed its upgrade schedule this week to confirm it has cancelled testing the update.
HTC finally broke silence as it told Android Central it is is continuing to investigate ways to bring Ice Cream Sandwich to the handset.
It said: "HTC is committed to providing the best customer experience on our devices and are currently determining the ability to support Ice Cream Sandwich on the HTC Desire HD. We'll provide more information when we've completed our analysis."
So there you have it. It's not quite the assurance you might have hoped for, but it's something. However, considering the Desire HD is now two years old, we don't recommend holding your breath.
