While TELUS originally promised to upgrade the HTC Desire HD with Ice Cream Sandwich, it appears now that the HTC Desire HD Ice Cream Sandwich has been cancelled.
The reason is apparently because the device did not perform up to snuff when HTC put it through testing with the software on board.
Clearly, this isn’t the news that HTC Desire HD owners on TELUS, or really, HTC Desire HD owners in general, wanted to hear, but that’s what it has come to.
Of course, while the news comes from a specific carrier’s documentation, this isn’t good news for HTC Desire HD owners worldwide, especially when TELUS says it was HTC, not it, that cancelled the update.
So, we’re going to assume that this means that the HTC Desire HD, in general, will never see the upgrade from Android 2.3 Gingerbread to Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich.
HTC originally confirmed Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich for the HTC Desire HD back in February and said that it would roll out the software update later in the year.
The manufacturer is also debating whether it will be upgrading the HTC Droid Incredible 2 with Android 4.0 with a decision to come by August. So, it’s certainly possible that the HTC Desire HD won’t be the only big name phone not to see the upgrade to Android 4.0 ICS.
At the moment though, it walks alone.
How are you HTC Desire HD owners feeling now that the bad news has been dished out?
