HTC Desire HD Get’s Unofficial Ice Cream Sandwich With Sense 3.6, The Promised Update That Never Was

The developers at XDA Developers have delivered what HTC didn’t: An Ice Cream Sandwich 4.0.4 ROM with the Sense 3.6 overlay. It’s basically what HTC promised but never delivered. I would like to clarify that HTC could deliver, but they didn’t for a good reason. The update required a partition resizing, meaning user data would be wiped. HTC deemed this… Read more

HTC Revises Statement On Desire HD ICS Update, We Lose All Hope

A few days ago, TELUS claimed that HTC had cancelled the Desire HD Ice Cream Sandwich update, citing performance issues. However, HTC rebutted saying they were fully committed to bringing Ice Cream Sandwich to the Desire HD (and even the Desire S). Sounds great right? Well, HTC has gone and “revised” their statement.

HTC Desire coming to US Cellular this Summer

US Cellular confirmed a Summer arrival for the HTC Desire on their Facebook page.  The Desire’s official specifications page reads a lot like the Nexus One plus Sense or Incredible minus 8MP cam and 8GB storage.  Take your pick.  Even though the specs show quad-band GSM guts, the US Cellular version will be CDMA.  So don’t get your hopes up for… Read more
