HTC changes mind over Tattoo - no Éclair upgrade

No joy for those expecting budget Android goodness
If you're one of the many HTC Tattoo owners out there – we've got bad news, there's no Android Éclair (2.0) coming in the near future.
A recent response to a French website from HTC stated that the company was working on such and upgrade – but HTC has been in touch with TechRadar to dispute it.
In a curt statement, the company simply says: "Currently there are no plans to update the HTC Tattoo with Éclair."
Lies or confusion?
So there you have it – we have to assume the original post was a mis-translation or just a blatant lie.
Or, if we're getting nit-picky, it could be that France is getting the upgrade, and the UK isn't. And if we're getting that technical, we could point out that Android 2.1 is Flan, not Éclair – one step along.
It would be most unlike HTC to decide to send a statement just to bluff us with wordplay, so we'll take this one at face value and have words if we suddenly see very modern-looking HTC Tattoos in the future.
