The HTC One Android 4.3 Jelly Bean update has been delayed again by several more days till Monday October 21. HTC’s Jason Mackenzie had earlier tweeted that the long awaited OS update would be skipping Android 4.2 and going straight to Android 4.3 Jelly Bean for the HTC One. This appears to be just one more example of HTC falling short when it comes to providing support for Android OS updates.

This isn’t the first time when HTC has messed up when it comes to providing Android OS support and it won’t be the last. This sort of thing won’t help bolster HTC’s flagging sales and the woes for the company are just beginning.

Taoyuan, Taiwan–Octoboer 8, 2012: HTC Corporation (TWSE: 2498), a global leader in mobile innovation and design, today announces unaudited consolidated results for 3Q 2012. For the third quarter of 2012, total revenues reached NT$70.2 billion. Unaudited operating income was NT$4.9 billion, net income before tax was NT$4.0 billion, net income after tax, excluding minority interest, was NT$3.9 billion, and unaudited earnings per share after tax were NT$4.70 based on 831,227 thousand weighted average number of shares.

Lorain Wong, HTC’s head of global PR is leaving after just four months. If HTC doesn’t shape up soon it’s consumers will start leaving too.
