HTC promises Jelly Bean for One X

HTC has begun rolling out the Android 4.0.4 update for One X smartphone users.
With the update comes a tweaked version of the HTC Sense 4.0 overlay and the same Android updates seen by all 4.0.4 users.

For now, UK users were first to receive the update, with other countries getting varying dates.

Says the phone maker: "The primary update will include an upgrade to Android version 4.0.4 (Ice Cream Sandwich), in addition to an improved Sense experience which will enable the ability to map menu functions to the 'recent app' key -- improving visual presentation in non-ICS apps like Facebook -- and improve tab management in the browser with a dedicated tab-switching button."

Additionally, One X users will see improvements to the integrated Beats Audio software and refinements to many camera features.

More importantly, HTC confirmed Jelly Bean for the device: "At this point in time, we can confirm that we have plans to upgrade our HTC One X, HTC One XL and HTC One S to Jelly Bean. While our goal is to bring the latest software updates to as many of our recent devices as possible, we are committed to maintaining every phone's performance and usability first."

If HTC wants to improve the user experience, they should just release new roms to make all their phones into Nexus devices, without the need to root.
