TELUS document shows that HTC has canceled Android 4.0 update for HTC Desire HD
Owners of the HTC Desire HD won't be too happy to hear that the Android 4.0 update for the phone has been canceled by HTC. The information came from an updated document for Canadian carrier TELUS which shows that HTC had canceled the update because of poor device performance during testing. Looking at the specs, the one-time flagship device does have 768MB of RAM, but only a single-core 1GHz processor. For HTC Desire HD users, it might seem disappointing but it is much better to have a device running Android 2.3 smoothly than one having hiccups with Android 4.0. At one time, the model did live through the update to Android 2.3.

According to the TELUS document, next month should see Android 4.0 updates for the Samsung GALAXY Tab 8.9 and Samsung GALAXY Tab 10.1 tablets. Even more precisely, the LG Optimus LTE is expected to receive its Ice Cream Sandwich update on August 7th, The document also shows the recent update of the Samsung GALAXY Note. The phablet received Android 4.0.4 on July 12th along with the Samsung Priority Suite.
