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.

That doesn't explain the Internet nearly going down when iOS 5 was released.


Uh, got any source for that?

I read a few articles/headlines. These 2 I just found, they are new to me, so apart from these there are more articles with the same message.

I don't click on MacDailyNews links but the first one was interesting. Seeing the internet hindered by a software release is quite interesting - although I myself had no issues downloading iOS 5 for my iPAd (I got it pretty quickly after release, in the middle of the rush).

Then again, I have 120MB down, so I guess I'm the 1% of internet users ;) .
