We’re not the least bit surprised by the statement we’ve just received from HTC regarding upgrades to Android 4.1 Jelly Bean. They’ve expressed their excitement in the upgrade’s arrival and are now evaluating the upgrade to see which phones they will end up pushing them out to.
I think it’s a safe assumption that all the HTC Hero (high-end like the One X and One S) devices will get the upgrade, and a few others might soon have the opportunity to get in on it, as well. But that’s all we know for now: they’re planning on bringing the upgrade to some devices. Let’s hope things come around sooner rather than later.
We are excited about Android Jelly Bean and are planning to support it across a variety of our devices. We are reviewing the software to determine our upgrade plans and schedule, so please stay tuned for more updates on specific device upgrade plans.
