    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

    What updates does Android need? I'm not missing any features on my D2.

    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 But I get pissed when my phone becomes out of date not for technical reasons but because verizon wants me to buy a new one.
