I wonder what HTC's plans will be for upgrading to 4.2+

Sony said the Xperia Z will be upgrading shortly after release.. I hope HTC keep pace with them and other manufacturers.

Plus 4.2 gets Photosphere, Gesture Typing, Lock screen widgets etc etc...

It's not to much the 'nothing to fret' about.. it's knowing that HTC will keep up to date with .. updates lol

I think they want things to change in 2013 though so maybe they will

Htc has a smaller company than most so it's not as easy to direct resources to updates but I'm sure they will.

Photosphere is an AOSP feature on which even if HTC upgrades to 4.2 it still won't be available. Gesture typing is already existing on HTC keyboards since 2011 I think. Lockscreen widgets is an AOSP feature also and won't come to HTC since HTC uses a sense lockscreen.


So yeah 4.2 is pretty much useless unless you're using AOSP.

That's fair enough then Don't google release the source code etc to HTC/Sony/Samsung etc... and they then just tweak the functions to work with their phones? I thought that's how it worked

been waiting 7 months since HTC stated that the One X would be getting JB, and still no light at the end of that tunnel. Pretty sure when they unveiled the One X last year they were going to update software more often, but two new "flagship" phones released since then and still no update. Do not buy HTC thinking they will update to new android versions. They do make great hardware, so root and have a great device.
