HTC Talks Jelly Bean Updates for Devices
HTC recently posted more information about which devices will and won't receive Android 4.1 Jelly Bean updates. Devices released in 2012 have the priority for 4.1 updates, but HTC will evaluate some 2011 devices as well. This year's One X and One S are definitely on the update list, as are other unnamed 2012 devices. Some didn't make the cut, however, including the One V and Desire C, which are not on the update list. According to HTC, their 512MB of RAM is the limiting factor. HTC was sure mention that just because some devices won't be updated to Android 4.1 doesn't mean they won't be provided with maintenance and other updates or fixes. HTC said the timing of the updates depends on many factors, such as carrier testing, and it will provide more information when it becomes available.
Meanwhile...the Nexus S runs on Jelly Bean.
Didn't HTC mention 4.1 updates in October?
