HTC is creating an exclusive testing group among the ranks of its VIfan club. Some members of HTC elevate may get early access to software updates other untested features, as long as they are willing to sign a nondisclosure agreement (NDA). 

Android lice posted a full Q&A about the program. For the time being ,it looks to be restricted to members of HTC Elevate who have demonstrated sufficient br enthusiasm.

y this matters: Software updates need to be tested before they hit the general public in order to avoid tragedy. Though of course even then problems can crop up, as Apple experienced this week with its iOS 8.0.1 disaster. HTC is looking to cash in on its br loyalists who may be willing to play with early-release software report on any bugs so they are squashed before hitting the public.
