Huh?
As far as I remember HTC didn't give a voucher for ICS upgrade with my phone. I paid my money and they are bound to fix my phone in case it breaks without my interference - but are they indebted to upgrade the phones' OS?

No. But they promised to do so for free!
I think we should appreciate that instead of complaining that their gift hasn't arrived yet. They gain nothing but good public relations from that, rather it costs them a lot of $$$, as they have to bring up lots of paid working hours from their coders, testers, ...

Just my 2¢

You right they did promised, and thats why they should stand behind their words, and not every month give us a delay. Like they pay to the coders and the testers so as I paid a lot of money for their phone. And believe me they do a good money for the updates, u dont know what goes behind the scenes. So please....

As far as I know they promised the update between June and July. So there is still no delay yet. I belive they will stand on it. Not like SonyEricsson or LG.

18 months support aggrement with google. Nothing more nothing less. But its googles fault. A little bit more pressure for delivering updates within one month for all supported phones would be fine. You want to sell? Okay, but you have to keep all phones 18 months up to date. Everything else is bull***it

By the way...i didnt find my money on the streets and i paid them near 500€ to get a full supported phone. They have to work hours? I wouldnt care if they had to work for months

Actually, that's not true. They signed up to an agreement to keep their phones up to date for 18 months from release, and part of my reason for buying this phone was that agreement. Its not a gift, its a part of being in the smartphone business and they need to learn that as more people get to know about new features, more people will start demanding updates or will go to apple, who do keep their devices up to date (to an extent)

As far as expense regarding updating our device, it is next to nothing. If they had open sourced the egl and camera drivers, we would have had a fully functional glitch free ICS 6 months ago, for free, from our friendly xda devs. They could release ICS with sense 3 on it for all of the devices that were out at the time within a matter of a couple of months from getting the source, they choose not to for business reasons, not technical ones. Their cost comes in constantly re-writing sense.
