Judging by your comments, Tweets, emails and Facebook posts a number of you expressed some concern and confusion over our recent “End-Of-Life” post for the HTC Amaze 4G, Sensation 4G among others. In hindsight, I suppose I should have made sure this was put into the post surrounded by neon lights to avoid any confusion or panic, but “End Of Life” only means it is the end of the “shelf life” for the phone. In other words, the phone will no longer be sold once the end of life is actually put in place, which we emphasize could still be weeks away. This DOES NOT mean the end of T-Mobile or HTC support, or the cancellation of planned Ice Cream Sandwich updates which are still scheduled for the Amaze 4G and Sensation 4G. There is no reason to be concerned over those updates and the phones remain covered by their warranties. I have little doubt HTC will continue to update them as planned.
All this being said, let’s re-emphasize that there is no reason to be concerned over that post as this isn’t the first instance T-Mobile or its competitors have set a number of phones for end of life at the same time. It is clear however that T-Mobile will have to replace them with alternative (and likely improved) models so we’ll just have to kick back and wait and see what Magenta has in store.
