Windows Phone 8.1 Update 1 is the hot ticket news item right now, albeit with some issues for HTC device owners. Sadly, it looks like it's getting worse still for HTC 8S owners as it doesn't look like they'll get Update 1 at all. If a post in the HTC forums is to be believed, the 8S has reached the end.
The post in full (and with pretty shaky translation) reads as follows:
By HTC and Microsoft R & D department after repeated communication matters relating HTC 8X/8S upgrade Windows Phone 8.1 Update developer preview version now make the following notification:
HTC 8X will be the first time the push notification system test time after stable, while HTC 8S due to some hardware upgrades do not meet the criteria, this will not be upgraded, hope you are using HTC 8S friends can understand. More timely information please keep an eye on the official micro-blog user information thanks for continued support of HTC users, thank you!
Sad news for sure.
