HTC One XL, One S now "preparing" for Jelly Bean

HTC One XL, One S now
The HTC One XL and One S might be among the first HTC devices to get updated to the newest version of Android, 4.1 Jelly Bean. Australian carrier Telstra specifically updated the HTC One XL and One S status to “preparing” for the Jelly Bean update, but gave no specific date.

You might be wondering where the flagship HTC One X is in Telstra’s list and of course its absence doesn’t mean it won’t get Jelly Bean, rather it means that it simply isn’t part of the Australian carrier’s portfolio under that name. That mysterious HTC One XL you probably haven't heard about is actually just the Australian version of the One X.

Anyway, this is good news for the two higher-end HTC Androids, but still not too far away from HTC’s previous statement that it is “excited” about bringing the new version of Android to the handsets. At least, if not certainty, this gives us more hope that the update will arrive sooner rather than later.

It is only your personal preference, nexus 7 has no sd slot with non removable battery too... still it is out sell well in US... most retail has sold out nexus 7 recently... does that mean no jellybean for you too??

"That mysterious HTC One XL you probably haven't heard about is actually just the Australian version of the One X." The One X (quad core) exists in Australia too. The one XL is just the LTE version, which is exactly the same as the One X for AT&T (dual core s4) in the USA except it uses 1800Mhz band for Telstra LTE and I believe there is a model that also uses 2600Mhz for parts of Europe.

Hopefully HTC will repurpose that useless "multitask button" into a menu button and remove that hideous black menu bar from the bottom of 99% of apps once and for all.
