HTC’s plans for updating the Desire HD to ICS have changed yet again. First we heard from the carrier Telus that the device will not be getting the ICS update because of poor performance but an HTC spokesperson denied the report and said that the update was scheduled.to be delivered. However, HTC has just updated their list of devices getting the update and unfortunately they’ve crossed out the Desire HD and have added the following statement.
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.
This is probably the final decision as HTC doesn’t want the customers to experience any poor performance on their devices. This reminds me of the No ICS for Galaxy S incident. Do we really need custom skins? Let us know by commenting below. (It rhymes)
