    Mark my words...the lack of transperancy regarding updates and the quick end of life dates will kill Android.

    Motorola has been good but I don't like the way HTC seems to ditch their support

    The droid is end of life already and will not receive another update, just one year after release. And watch all the new phones teased in the last year that don't get 2.3. I am willing to bet the incredible doesn't get gingerbread.

    Don't count the droid out just yet. But that's beside the point. Android isn't the culprit here, its just the nature of technology. We are experiencing a huge boom in technological advances and if a company wants to continue to add to their customer base and not get left in the dust, they have to continually evolve. Its the same story accross the board so if android is going to fail, so is every mobile platform in existence.

    So in your words, Windows will fail because PC have end of life every 6 months. If you dont like Android then leave sell your phone and buy a Windows 7 phone or a Crapberry. Don't hate because phones EOL when technology advances

    I'm not an Android fan or an iphone fan. In all honesty ive never understood how anyone could be a fan of an electronic item. But I get pissed when my phone becomes out of date not for technical reasons but because verizon wants me to buy a new one.

    Don't hate the player hate the game. Regardless of what carrier, operating system, manufacturer, smart phone, dumb phone, its always going to be the same.

    There's still hope the D1 will get GB and most devicess launched after should definately get it. The issue with updates is not with google, they are doing a good job. Heck the iphone get 1 update a year...and not always a major one. The D1 is still relevant. Even though its not on the shelf anymore doesn't mean its not supported. Just because technology moves fast doesn't mean there's a problem. If you have a D1 you will be fine until your NE2 and when you do upgrade you will have a device by and far way superior to what you left. Be happy knowing that.

    Did you see the rom section of these phones lately. We update for like 2 mins then we all go back to roms. Motorola and google has done a good job supporting their devices. The d1 just got an update a few weeks ago and the dx followed. We know the d2 will be getting one soon. Just chill on out and enjoy your device....besides the droids dont need 100s of updates they just make minor tweaks here an there.
