Google "The announcement that Nexus One users won't be getting upgraded to Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich led some to justifiably question Google's support of their devices. I look at it a little differently: Nexus One owners are lucky. I've been researching the history of OS updates on Android phones and Nexus One users have fared much, much better than most Android buyers." I'm happy the modding community takes care of orphaned devices, but a solution it is not. I'm hoping the crop of Android phones released this past year - which were not included in this analysis - fair better. If there's one thing Google should steal from Apple, it's their iOS update support.

A colleague of mine rooted his Android phone.

Okay, he bricked it and after waiting 4 weeks for it to get it repaired he took up the offer of forgetting about it and taking a show model. But lucky him, there was a 16 GB micro SD card inside.
