It looks like the saga surrounding the official Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich update of the much beloved HTC Desire HD is finally over, folks. HTC have officially removed the 2010 Android monster from the official list of devices scheduled to get the ICS treatment.
Here goes HTC's official statement on the matter:
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.
This means that, should they want to see their device run a more up-to-date Android version, the owners of the HTC Desire HD will have to install it in an unofficial fashion.
