HTC and Verizon tell more BS than a school yard bully…
by Troy Saxton-Getty
Verizon and HTC promised Ice Cream Sandwich (ICS) for the Thunderbolt in a joint statement and said to expect it no later than mid August 2012. This is flat bullshit (that’s a technical term) guys, someone who wrote the memo to spread this around (And I suspect the subsequent cover up memo’s back to the CS reps taking all the front line phone call flack needs to get taken out and flogged)
Since when is it ok for such large companies to put out pure BS? This is why Apple will always win….I was told a date for iOS6 and the minute the little hand hit the top of the hour I was downloading it to every iOS device we have in the lab, including original iPhone 4′s, iPads and everything iOS based without a hitch, the entire time looking at my Thunderbolt phone sitting on its cool little kick stand just mocking me.
HTC and Verizon cant make this simple effort of upgrading a HTC Thunderbolt to ICS? Jelly Bean (the Next gen Android OS is already shipping on some phones) The ROM guys have these builds in days of he OS releases and they don’t have the benefit of working at HTC or Verizon, cheap bastards(another technical term), Hire 4 of these guys and dump the 469 engineers you have working on upgrade ports and you might just be competitive.
Holy OS crap shoot Batman, this is nuts….. Stop allowing the reps in the reseller stores to lie to potential customers telling them Android phones are upgradable. While a few are, the majority are not.
This is now one of the largest flat out lies in the mobile handset industry.
Reps at all of the large carriers are telling potential customers that updates are just around the corner and it’s just not true.
You are actually just flat out lying to us….. seriously….. we have 18 android handsets in the lab, but I must say, Apple you win because you make it transparent, real you do what you say you will.
