On again, off again: HTC Desire HD is not getting the Android 4.0 update
Almost a week ago, we told you about a leaked document from Canadian carrier TELUS that listed the phones on its lineup that will be receiving the Android 4.0 update. Surprisingly, the HTC Desire HD was not included and the document mentioned that the device showed poor performance with the higher OS build. Earlier this week, that decision was reversed and HTC confirmed that the HTC Desire HD was on track to receive the update But this was not the end of the story.

Apologizing for the confusion it had caused its customers (to say nothing of the confusion it caused us), HTC on Friday said that after testing Android 4.0 on the HTC Desire HD, it has decided that the current software offers the best experience possible for the hardware. HTC reminded all of its customers that it has the customer experience uppermost on its mind, and Android 4.0 on the HTC Desire HD just did not cut it. So the one time flagship model is stuck on Gingerbread.It certainly sounds final this time, but considering how this story has played out, who knows?
