Canadian users were about to pick up their torches and pitchforks after hearing TELUS had canceled the Android 4.0 update to the HTC Desire HD. Of course, we would be upset too. Especially after the carrier announced the device would be one of the few to get Ice Cream Sandwich. Well guys, it turns out we might have to go riot somewhere else – HTC’s headquarters.
HTC is now claiming the device is best sticking with Android 2.3. This is, of course, after “extensive testing.”
“After extensive testing, HTC has 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.”
As Raveesh mentioned before, there is an abundance of devices with lower specs that will be getting the creamy update. Not to mention the fact that the same device has a growing list of custom ROMs running Android 4.0 and above. HTC Desire HD users will have to depend on those to get the latest updates from now on, so it is rooting time!
