    Team that will create guidelines for device updates


    [​IMG]


    Google has announced that they are putting together a team of people from many of our favorite carriers and OEMs, to commit to bringing the latest Android updates to all carriers & user devices. According to Google, new devices will receive the latest updates for 18 months after their release -- if the hardware allows. More to come.

    Finally! Glad to see Google is doing something about fragmentation rather then trying to deny it.

    This is great news for us! Now we just have to make skins like sense and blur an optional feature, and unlock the bootloaders

    Sounds good. Putting a team together solely for updates should help anyway.
