HTC has finally revealed that it would not be providing Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich update to the company's much-loved Desire HD smartphone. The company has officially removed the phone from its official list of devices scheduled to get the ICS update.
HTC has provided a footnote in its blog saying "After extensive testing, we've determined that the current version of HTC Sense with Android provides customers with the best experience on the HTC Desire HD. When we consider new versions of software, we weigh a number of factors, but ultimately the customer experience on the product is the deciding factor. We apologize for any confusion this change may have caused our customers."

Earlier, Canadian carrier Telus informed that HTC would not be providing ICS treatment to the Desire HD phone due to "poor device performance." But users still pinned their hopes as the maker announced that time that "HTC is committed to providing the best customer experience on our devices and are currently determining the ability to support Ice Cream Sandwich on the HTC Desire HD. We'll provide more information when we've completed our analysis." But finally, the Taiwanese company put an end to the anticipation by removing the name officially from the list of devices getting ICS.
Meanwhile, the company has stated in blog that it has just started rolling out Android 4.0 for the HTC Sensation and HTC Sensation XE, and the upgrade will be available within next few weeks. The update for the HTC Sensation 4G and HTC Sensation XL will follow, asserts the company.
