PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless "Earlier today, Samsung revealed that it won't update the Galaxy S, its most successful smartphone to date, to the latest version of Android. You might shrug and dismiss that as just more evidence of Android's inherent fragmentation or the need for buyers to beware, but I take grave issue with it. This is a decision based not on technical constraints, as Samsung would have you believe, but on hubris." This. A gazillion million thousand times this. Also: "It's simple: make a large high-end device, a smaller value device, and a QWERTY device. Maybe one or two other specialty form factors, tops. That's it. Update them once a year, and keep the names the same." It would make updating a hell of a lot easier. We don't need the Samsung Galaxy SII Epic 4G Touch Sensation.

What's all the hype about? Why to update a device that works perfectly? Update just for update? Updates often bring just additional bloat. Can somebody explain why he needs so much to update his phone? Or is it the same crowd instinct "Oh I have iphone 3 and everyone else already got iphone 5xz. Oh I'm such a loser I should update ASAP!!1!" ?
