Sad news for those of you who own an HTC One S. HTC doesn’t plan to issue any more software updates to your smartphone. A statement from the handset maker says that the phone will be stuck with Android 4.1 Jelly Bean.

“We can confirm that the HTC One S will not receive further Android OS updates and will remain on the current version of Android and HTC Sense.  We realize this news will be met with disappointment by some, but our customers should feel confident that we have designed the HTC One S to be optimized with our amazing camera and audio experiences.” – HTC

It’s not exactly the worst news in the world; Jelly Bean is better than having Ice Cream Sandwich…or Gingerbread. You know, you could always root and ROM your way to new features, too.
