Back on July 16th it was revealed that the Desire HD on Telus had officially been blocked out of Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich updates due to “performance issues” despite having better hardware than some other devices that already have ICS *cough* HTC One V *cough*. Meanwhile, HTC maintained the Desire HD was capable of running ICS and pushing out the code to carriers was still on track.
According to Android Central (whom has had better luck getting responses it seems), Telus revised their statement saying it was an HTC decision to nix the Desire HD from ICS updates and not theirs, despite the fact they were/are the only carrier so far to cut out the Desire HD.
And now, HTC is revising their previous statement saying that the Desire HD’s Android 4.0 ICS capabilities are actually still being determined.
Per HTC via AndroidCentral:
“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.”
Such a cluster.
