HTC throws a hissy fit, cancels WP8 GDR2 update for the HTC 8X?

It looks like HTC is throwing a hissy fit at the Nokia/Microsoft deal and withdrawing support from its Windows Phone handsets.

According to the Vodafone Australia’s software update page:

HTC have advised they won’t be releasing this update. Any future updates will be announced as we hear of them.

The update in question is the Windows Phone 8 GDR2 update, and has been ready since July, when it status was “Approved. waiting for release by Microsoft.”

Of course there may be a more innocent reason why the struggling Taiwanese company has decided to cancel the software update, and the timing may simply be a coincidence. Either way it leaves HTC 8X users on Vodafone Australia unsupported, which is far from ideal.

Thanks Chaitu for the tip.
