Windows Ah, something Microsoft really couldn't use right now: problems with the very first update to its Windows Phone 7 operating system. In this very competitive marketplace, in which WP7 is a late newcomer, it can't use major problems like this. The thing is though - how big of a problem is this, really? And, is it even Microsoft's fault at all?

It doesn't matter much if you run 2.2.1 or 2.3 on Galaxy S, as it doesn't have the hardware that is needed for most of the new stuff in 2.3. Sure, there is the new keyboard, and the black status bar, but that's about it.

Android 2.3 is known to have had issues with the phones rebooting now and then on Nexus S, and Galaxy S might have the same problem. The problem was fixed just a few days ago in Android 2.3.3. So Samsung might have had very good reason not to upgrade beond 2.2.1. At least not until now, when 2.3.3 is out.

Updating is not just about having the highest OS version number, it's about getting a good, working product.
