More about The (Non) Android Updates

We have talked on occasion of the “ dangers ” that lurk to Android, the operating system from Google? coming to liberate the mobile landscape. One of them is the fragmentation models and screen sizes.

The other and he already spoke a long time one of the first cases sonados in Spain is that of updating the operating system. It is possible that after a car cellphones are purchases which most devalue over time, if at least the operating system of updated our investment is profitable for a longer time. And stating that we are talking about official update, we know that many things can be cooked but that is another matter.

We have model “ old ” of Windows Mobile y Palm where update system was a utopia and we have model “ monolithic ” of Apple in which the updates are coming (said by way of example, is not taken as a position). And meanwhile we have already told of Android: by Goggle, not by Google, HTC, operators. Questions and more questions & #8230;

At least the customers of Rogers, a Canadian operator it are already clear, their “ Magic & #8221; y “ G1 & #8221; they will stay with 1.5, there is no Donut for them.

This is the specific quote:

HTC is not currently planning any Android 1.6 upgrades for Rogers Dream or Magic. Android 1.6 was only made available for “Google (NSDQ: GOOG)”-branded devices such as the G1. It is not available for HTC-branded products such as the Dream or Magic, which use Android 1.5. We believe that Android 1.5 is a stable and reliable platform that delivers a terrific user experience software.

We love the last sentence: “ believe that Android 1.5 is a stable platform of confidence provided us with a fantastic user experience ”. (And we have not made the easy joke, “ terrific ” is not terrible in English). Well, it seems that much more to add there is. My opinion is clear, in this and in all cases: customers have the right of access to the latest versions of the systems. Ah! you remember me: that our phone battery lasts at least one day.
