http://www.zdnet.com/blog/mobile-news/time-for-google-to-take-control-of-the-android-update-process/664?tag=nl.e550 I completely agree with this article. The biggest problem with Android right now is that a lot of the phones are either slow to get updates or never get them at all, which makes them worthless unless you plan to root them and install roms. Moreover, I think the OS should be uniform across phones, and free of crapware. Android perpetually feels like it's in a beta state because so many phones have horrible implementations of the OS. It's sad that phone manufacturers are allowed to fuck things up so badly, because stock Android is a pretty good OS. I think they could take more control while leaving the market open to developers and the OS open to the mod community. Google needs to get its shit together, or it's never going to be able to compete with Apple and Microsoft in the long run.
