The game is now over for HTC Desire HD owners who are hoping to get an official update to Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich. HTC’s list of devices that will get ICS this year now excludes the Desire HD.
Here’s HTC’s explanation for this:
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.
So there you have it. Unless a wonder happens and HTC changes its mind, if you have a Desire HD you won’t be able to run Android ICS on it – at least not in an officially manner.
