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.

Member since:

I've been modded down so clearly someone disagrees with me, but the coward hasn't left a comment.

Could someone explain to me what it was about my comment that is wrong. If I've misjudged the situation then I'd love to understand where any why ;)

The moderation system is useless and only serves to ensure mob-rule is enforced in the comments section. For what it's worth, I attempted to mod you up but I can no longer do so (and yet, I can still reply).

If I were to hazard a guess, I'd say the following ticked someone off:

Clearly it's not the consumers fault though, if Apple have managed to attract more customers with 1 phone a year than Sony have with > 6 phones a year, then you have to ask yourself if it really pays to flood the market.

Remember, Apple is never right. ;-)
