TELUS Cancels HTC Desire HD Update To Android 4.0, Blames ‘Poor Device Performance During Testing’

Earlier this year, HTC announced a slew of handsets that were slated to receive Ice Cream Sandwich in the not-so-near future. Surprisingly, the Desire HD, a single-core device released in 2010, was on that list.

Today, however, Telus has officially canceled the device’s Android 4.0 update, citing poor testing results. It’s hard to believe that the Desire HD isn’t capable of running Ice Cream Sandwich considering its beefy 768MB of RAM, but if performance is a serious issue than the upgrade just isn’t worth it. Plus, if you want Ice Cream Sandwich, there are plenty of ROMs for your hacking pleasure.

Some good news for Galaxy Note owners: The Ice Cream Sandwich update has been approved and is set to rollout starting July 12th. Also, Android 4.0 for the Galaxy Tab 10.1 and 8.9 have been pushed back until August.
