Using the New Every Two from VZW works for me. If something newer and better comes along in between - it won't be a monumental advance, and if it should - I'd pay the price to upgrade early. Meanwhile - as long as we can continue upgrading the Android System - we'll be mostly up to date. Perhaps a bit slower - but hey, mobile use is not really a race!
Which reminds me - I heard 2.1 is being released later today!
