If HTC wants to become master in India, they should provide ICS upgrade for some older versions like Wildfire S, HTC Salsa etc..

Hey What about the HTC Desire HD Phone...I got the Gingerbread 2.3.3 installed but will we atleast get the Gingerbread 2.3.5 Upgrade...HTC doesnt desert the other phones like the Desire HD because it isnt very long before the this phone was launched.

Disappointed that desire hd is not on that list. But lets not lose hope yet. Devs from xda are very talented after all.

What happened to HTC supporting all their devices for 18 months? I went from Desire to Desire S and work in the phone industry. I'm F'd if I'm gonna continue using or promoting their devices.

Tell me if I buy the HTC Sensation XL now will it be obsolete in 6 months time like the Desire HD or am I better off an iPhone for consistency and stability? Judging by the comments so far it seems Android is still a toy so HTC can pump out volumes of low cost disposable consumer product. Cut and Run, sell & forget. Am I angry, sure am, I purchased the Desire HD 7 months ago thinking it was the latest and the best and will get ICS to find it's already obsolete.

I am disappointed to see that so few handsets get the upgrade. Strange thing is I do not even have an android phone. Robert Lichota.

It's android - this is the biggest con of it - you won't get an update unless smarphone company decides to update older devices than 3 months old. Basically, more than 50% of android users are left with same old software even if their device is released in a 6 months or has decent specs.
Only Google Nexuses get almost all android updates.
FU android.
