HTC confirms driver update forthcoming, not much else


If you own an smartphone manufactured by HTC running Windows Mobile, you’re about to receive a free software update. We don’t know when it’ll hit or what it will do, but it’ll do something.

HTC has been criticized by some for what they consider poor implementation of of graphics acceleration in certain handsets, saying that the devices are sluggish due to poor drivers for video. The update, that HTC today confirmed is coming, will likely fix this problem, though the maker offered no specifics.

There’s a class-action suit pending, though it’s unknown if it will ever go to court. While many are upset with HTC over its handling of video on its devices, many others have a “you get what you pay for” attitude, more or less echoing HTC’s line.
