Telus to update HTC One S, Samsung Galaxy S II X 4G and Samsung GALAXY Note to Android 4.1
posted by Alan F. / Jan 22, 2013, 6:26 AM
The HTC One S update will bring HTC's Sense 4+ running on top of Android 4.1, and the update will give all of the models the silky smooth scrolling (along with alluring alphabetic alliteration) of Project Butter. Google Now makes sure that the information you need to see, like the morning commute, weather, and the morning Gold fix from Zurich, are sent to your phone in a timely manner.
The HTC One S update is being tested in Telus' own lab while the updates due in February have not yet been tested.

That's Androids biggest problem OEM and Carrier updates to android devices. OEMs save alot of money not having to develope their own OS they get free source of a great OS from Google but rarely support the support the OS once they release a device. Google should change the terms for OEMs using android that once a device is made the OS is reqired to get at least 3 updates. The OEMs are hurting Androids image in this way a device is released and then 6 month later the Android OS is updated and most OEMs do nothing with it. Don't like Apple but they support their devices years after they release them.

I think OEMs like to update at the middle and end of a devices lifecycle. Its a trend that Ive noticed. Except low end phones. I call conspiracy to keep those devices alive and so people dont feel like their device is dead. So even if it might be available it seems they decide to make you wait. Could also be marketing to make the current flagships more desirable.
