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.
