HTC Desire S ICS update still on target for August
HTC has seen its sales declining in recent times as competition mounts from the likes of Samsung on the Android platform, along with the ever present popularity of the Apple iPhone. Its reputation hasn’t been helped by the slow and sometimes non-existent upgrading of its hardware to the newer versions of the platforms operating system. It seems though that owners of the HTC Desire S will be treated to the Android ICS update this month.
As an article over at GottaBe Mobile is reporting it seems that the HTC Desire S will still see Ice Cream Sandwich this month as originally planned, but currently a specific date for the release remains unclear.
The company has taken to its official Facebook page and confirmed the much welcome news to an owner of the handset, who was asking when the Desire S would be seeing the Ice Cream Sandwich update released.
HTC replied that it still plans to update the handset to Android 4.0 ICS before the end of the month, but is not revealing what actual day owners will start seeing the update rolling out. This news comes after it was recently revealed that owners of the Desire HD were not going to see an official release of the software pushed out to the handset.
Last month the company also revealed a number of handsets that were pegged to receive the software in the coming months, but this comes after Google has released another version of the operating system in the form of Android Jelly Bean.
Users of the platform will be hoping that in the coming months the upgrading of hardware will run more smoothly than it has been so far with the Ice Cream Sandwich update. Do you think the Android platform’s reputation is being damaged by the slow updating of devices?
