HTC to miss self-imposed HTC One Android 4.4 release

3 months ago 22

The HTC One Android 4.4 update is rolling out to unlocked handsets across Europe, but owners of carrier-branded handsets in the US will not be getting the update by the end of January as previously promised.┬áJason Mackenzie, President of HTC Americas, announced yesterday afternoon that HTC hopes that carrier certification of the update will be completed soon and that “it shouldn’t be more than one to two weeks to complete each of the carrier versions of the HTC One.”

HTC has been very transparent about the Android 4.4 update process for the HTC One and a few other of its handsets in the US. Delayed software updates are not the type of news consumers typically want to hear, but HTC should get some credit for having an open conversation about the status of the One’s Android 4.4 update before its self-imposed deadline expired.

How do you think HTC has been handling the Android 4.4 update process for its lineup?
