HTC One S owners petition for Android update

HTC One S owners petition for Android update
On Tuesday, we passed along the word from HTC France that the HTC One S will not be updated to Android 4.2. Nor will the phone be receiving Sense 5, which runs on top of the Android OS. But owners of the HTC One S are not going to take this sitting down. No siree. Instead, owners of the device have taken to to put up a petition requesting that the Taiwan based manufacturer revisit their decision and update the model.

Do HTC One S owners have a case? The petition says that on February 28th, HTC promised that HTC One S owners would be receiving both Android 4.2.2 and Sense 5.0. The T-Mobile branded version of the phone didn't receive an update to Android 4.1.1 until this past April. The petitioner also notes that YouTube videos of the handset running Android 4.2.2 ROMs show no problems with any performance issues.

So far, the petition has been electronically signed by 929 people, requiring just 71 more before it is sent on to HTC. If you're an HTC One S owner not happy with HTC's decision to forever freeze the phone at its current OS build, why not send a message to the suits back in Taiwan that you're not happy and not going to take it anymore.
