Google It was time somebody cleared that up: the oft-decried skins put by OEM and operators on Android are not responsible for the lateness or lack of updates. The truth is that skins are easy, hardware drivers are hard. That is not to say skins do not have other problems, or that the problem is unsolvable, but asking for "stock" Android OS is not going to help on the update front.

Why upgrade an existing phone so that it will be useful longer when a carrier can simply flaunt an expensive new model with the latest software? My advice is to only buy Google phones such as the Galaxy Nexus...oh wait... Apple has made sure that can't happen anymore in the U.S. I hate Apple!
