HTC has created to visualize a huge infographic that shows step by step how to run evalution, Development, Integration, and Certfication Push-to-consumer. HTC explains this to the three classes of devices that you have currently in store, here there once the developers devices that Google Play Edition and the contract devices that belong in this country to the most common class.

After the announcement of the Android source code then go to the chipset manufacturer, which then in turn decide whether the new version of Android is supported. If this is the case, then go appropriate drivers and enhancements to HTC, which then their own (often unpleasant) software must adapt.

Finally worked out together with any mobile operator, like this its apps, services and Co best married with the new system. After final testing, the new version is then delivered to the mobile operators, the conclusion also is testing again.
