HTC Talks Jelly Bean Updates for Devices
Nov 12, 2012, 2:47 PM by Eric M. Zeman
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.
The HTC Desire C is a wee little smartphone for Cricket Wireless. This thing may be small in size, but it's still got plenty to offer.
HTC's One S for T-Mobile is an easy phone to recommend for anyone who loves Android, speed, and solid performance from their smartphone. Does it have any faults?
HTC's flagship Android smartphone for 2012 impresses in most respects. Here's what we like and what we don't at first glance.
The HTC One S is a slightly toned down version of the One, but still has its own identity. The One S, coming to T-Mobile USA, will surely appeal to many with its good looks and capable features.
HTC's flagship device for 2012 is the One X. With it and its siblings, HTC hopes to revitalize its position in the smartphone market.
