Google The source code for Android 2.3 has been released. "Nexus S went on sale yesterday morning in the US, running Gingerbread. Just like I did for Froyo, I'm open-sourcing the matching Android platform source code, right after the first consumers get their hands on it. I'm going to start literally right now, and the process will take a few hours."

Most of the people I know bought in to Android because Verizon doesn't offer iPhones - and they were not going to AT&T just for an iPhone ;)

It's really not much different from my WinMo days; if you wanted an OS feature two versions later than what came on the phone, you turned to the porting/hacking community. If Apple is indeed backporting all their new iOS versions to old hardware, then good for them. One does pay a price for that in other areas, though.
