Google "Google is making another attempt to fix the Android update problem at the Google I/O conference. The plan is to give smartphone, tablet and chip manufacturers earlier opportunities to adapt their current and new hardware to forthcoming Android versions. Google said that it hopes that this will allow users to receive their updates faster. To achieve this, Android executive Hugo Barra announced a 'Platform Development Kit'." I have my doubts.

They mustn't treat their platform seriously not to announce such a deal in 1.6 times.
This action will be as effective as retirement bills to country budget: only in next generation.
Android is still growing, but how long?
