Android 4.4 update for the U.S. version of the HTC One is now delayed by one to two weeks
Back on Halloween, HTC America president Jason Mackenzie sent out a tweet saying that the U.S. carrier branded versions of the HTC One would be updated to Android 4.4 in no later than 90 days. That meant that the devices would all be running the KitKat build of Android no later than January 31st. But a letter posted today on HTC's website by the executive, states that HTC will "miss the self-imposed deadline."

According to the message, Android 4.4 will be arriving one to two weeks late for HTC's flagship model. And while this will mean that the update is coming later than HTC said it would, the timing still dovetails with a leaked update roadmap for the manufacturer that we showed you last week. According to that map, the HTC One should receive Android 4.4.2 and Sense 5.5 in late January to mid-February.

Mackenzie says, "The good news is that we won’t miss by much, as it shouldn’t be more than one to two weeks to complete each of the carrier versions of the HTC One." HTC, and Mackenzie in particular, has tried to keep customers abreast of the update process with regular communications via Twitter. There have been one or two bumps in the road, but for the most part we have to give HTC an "A" for effort. 

Mr. Mackenzie's missive can be found in its entirety, below. By the way, the executive uses the letter to let everyone know which team he will be rooting for during the Super Bowl.
