HTC Explains Why the Desire HD won't be getting Android 4.0 ICS

HTC Android 4.0 ICS upgrade

Few months back HTC Desire HD owners were promised Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich update but the company has broken its promise and officially announced that the Desire HD won't be getting Android 4.0, despite the fact that phone packing hardware similar to its newer phones that run on ICS.

The Taiwanese handset manufacturer might felt your pain and the need to give further explanation to Desire HD owners, claiming that they have a good reason for denying Android 4.0 ICS upgrade.

According to HTC, due to how storage on the HTC Desire HD is partitioned – and the larger size of Android 4.0 – it would require re-partitioning device storage and overwriting user data in order to install this update. While technically advanced users might find this solution acceptable, the majority of customers would not. We also considered ways to reduce the overall size of the software package, but this would impact features and functionality that customers are currently using. Even after installing the update, there were other technical limitations which we felt negatively impacted the user experience.

What do you think above explanation from HTC is enough to please HTC Desire HD owners waited for Android 4.0 ICS upgrade?

The following HTC devices are confirmed to get Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich:

  • DROID Incredible 2 by HTC
  • HTC Amaze 4G
