It seems that the HTC 8S won’t be getting update 1

Windows Phone gets criticised a lot. Manufacturers get criticised a lot, especially when they don’t update devices to the latest and greatest software. So imagine the hate HTC are going to be up against as they’ve announced on their forums that their budget Windows Phone the 8S isn’t going to be updated to update 1 for hardware reasons. Here is a translated version of what was posted on the forum.

It’s a shame really, as the 8S was one of the better looking budget Windows Phone 8 devices. Speculation is that as it only has 4GB of internal memory which left it with about 1GB out of the box, that it just hasn’t got space to install the OS upon.
