The HTC Desire HD was the Taiwanese company’s flagship handset for the 2nd half of 2010. Even by 2012 standards, the phone has a pretty spec sheet with a 1GHz Qualcomm processor, 768MB of RAM, and oodles of storage space. When HTC released its Ice Cream Sandwich upgrade road-map for its devices earlier this year, it stated that the Desire HD should taste ICS sometime in late Q3 of this year.
However, things might have taken a turn for the bad, as according to an updated TELUS document the Desire HD Ice Cream Sandwich update has been cancelled. The TELUS document states that “HTC has cancelled the HTC Desire HD ICS upgrade due to poor device performance during testing.”
The 1GHz Snapdragon processor + 768MB of RAM are more than enough to make sure ICS runs smoothly on the Desire HD. The Incredible S, which packs similar internals as the Desire HD, tasted Ice Cream Sandwich a few weeks ago. The only reason HTC could have cancelled the ICS update for the handset would be due to the investment involved.
HTC still has not officially announced anything whether the ICS update for the handset has been cancelled or not, so there is still some hope left for Desire HD owners.
