This is sad all the anguish of these companies barely supporting the products they sell and apple still supports its old devices. For a few years. I think this is why people buy apple cause the **** just works. I love my galaxy note left my iPhone 4 just isn't completely perfect needs ics

An iPhone typically last 2-3 major software updates, and older devices do not get full updates typically there are several features missing.

Most android phones get the same amount of updates. For example the original galaxy s line started on eclair, then froyo, then gingerbread. In between there were several small maintenance updates

I have read these arguments before but they really do not hold water. I have an iPhone 4 but no Siri. The flyer unfortunately was a failed device for htc that they are apparently abandoning. Htc in general looks to be on the ropes

Yeah I was just saying that yesterday. Apple people love to throw updates in your face but like you said the 4 doesn't have siri. Old iPhones get SOME new features but not all. And at this point everything older than a 4 is pretty much cut off anyway and if it does get anymore updates its usually just a version number nothing less nothing more.

Apple aren't so much supporting the old devices as supporting the revenue stream that they get from the apple store. Apple has a very different business model and not one that I like - most people don't mind it though.

Just to inform everyone here. Today I was called by the technical staff from HTC Europe. I replied a few times to an e-mail conversation wich I had with the customer service and myself. They said that ICS was only phone software and not tablet software. The tablet software is HC according them.

I filled out a survey and demanded an update because the arguments were rubbish. ICS is 100 procent tablet software as well.

The technical staff was very friendly and explained HTC updates their phones first. He also said that at the moment an ICS update for the flyer was not available and not expected soon. On the question if it comes at all I got the standard answer that he did not know that for 100 percent. The advice is to look at the website now and then.

Sorry not having any positive knews but at least some person of the staff explained the situation..

Edit: Though credits for HTC, I did the servey yesterday and the staff replied within 12 hours by phone to explain things!
new htcdrivers, software or WMtools:
