HTC Cancels Android 4.0 For The Desire HD

HTC has cancelled its plans to install the Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich OS for the Desire HD Smartphone. This move was reported by Telus, the Canadian mobile operator. It was way back in May that the company promised its users that the Desire HD would get an upgrade in the form of the Ice Cream Sandwich Android 4.0 OS in July with the HTC Rhyme and Desire S devices. However, it has been revealed in a document of Telus that the above update for the Desire HD has been cancelled and now users will be stuck with the Android 2.3 Gingerbread version.

The network reported that the Company was forced to cancel the ICS upgrade to the HTC Desire on account of its poor performance during its testing phase. This news is indeed shocking for some mobile experts as the phone does have unique features in the form of a 1 GHz Snapdragon processor along with 768 MB of RAM.

This does not indicate that using the Google Android 4.0 operating system would be too difficult for the phone to handle. This is not very disappointing as the Canadian operator also revealed that there are some other devices that would be upgraded to the ICS system and they include the Blackberry Bold and the Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 and 8.9 tablets.
