HTC 8 will not get WP8.1 update 1

HTC has announced on their support forums that,
after much discussion with Microsoft, that the HTC
8S does not meet the hardware criteria for the
Windows Phone 8.1 GDR1 Preview.
HTC does not reveal the issue, but I suspect it may
be related to the small amount of internal storage
(only 4 GB) on the handset.
In better news however HTC has also said that
they will start pushing out the WP8.1 GDR1 update
to HTC 8X users, after some time, to assess the
stability of the device with the OS.
While Microsoft has done an excellent job bringing
the software to the cheapest Nokia Lumia, the HTC
8S was always designed as a cheap handset, and
as such the expectation of multiple future updates
may be limited.
Are our readers overly disappointed or surprised
by this decision? Let us know below.The new Htc 8 is a very powerful mobile android phone.
