HTC One Jelly Bean 4.2.2 update "very close"

No Jelly Bean 4.3 yet..

If a tweet from a HTC developer described by GottaBeMobile as a "notorious insider" is correct, the HTC One is "very close" to getting an update to Jelly Bean 4.2.2; although HTC has yet to confirm an update.

This will certainly be welcomed, as the HTC One currently ships with Android 4.1.2, which is unusual for a new phone, as that version is almost a year old. HTC's own Sense 5 that ships with 4.1.2, is currently not compatible with 4.2.2, although the HTC Butterfly already has 4.2.2 and Sense 5.1 leading many to believe that it will also be included with the 4.2.2 update on the One. 

Yet another report from Toms Hardware, claims there are also rumors that 4.3 is on the horizon, but Google has yet to even confirm a release date.

No dates have been mentioned, and the Tweet is almost two weeks old; so if we assume it's a lot closer now, hopefully HTC One owners can expect this very shortly.

Yeah, but does that mean they are close to finished with the code? Or close to actually pushing it to devices? Because I have AT&T and even with the latter I can expect to wait another 6 months for their release.

Well, I hope this is true - and we'll see how long it takes AT&T to get its act together. I've had good experience with my HTC Droid Incredible (the first one) - it got updated from 2.1 to 2.2 to 2.3, and minor updates here and there also. Can't say the same for Samsung Galaxy S (1st).

Screw you HTC you claimed my device couldn't "handle" ICS and left me on friggin Ginger Bread. For those that don't know how to get a clean/custom ROM thats unacceptable.

Customers are not fools. The company which provides steady stream of updates to all it's devices for minimum 2 years will survive.

customers are fools. most of them dont even know you can update a phone operation system

If customers were fools, HTC would have had continued to make bumper profits despite poor built quality of devices and even poorer software update policies.

Don't really trust you HTC. You spent months promising a 4.0 update for your best selling model of all time, the Desire HD, and cancelled it a week before it was due out because you believed the phone was capable of it. Back in the real world my Desire HD currently runs 4.2.2...
