Google "Let's not mince words here: This 'Android and iPhone Update History' chart [OSNews item] is not a good chart. Oh, it's a pretty chart, to be sure artfully illustrated and researched. But this chart - done up by Michael Degusta at The Understatement and reposted by anyone unable to think clearly, apparently - is not a good chart. Or at the very least, it fails to recognize a fundamental difference between Android and iOS and the iPhone."

I think bringing up a lack of iOS support for the original iPhone or iPhone 3G is absurd.


So for Android it is valid to complain but for iPhone not. Typical Mac fan answer.

Not at all. The iPhone and iPhone 3G are much older than any of the Android phones being considered. No one has an issue with support ending; the problem is the brevity of support on many Android phones. Give the average Android handset the same 3 years as the iPhone and I wouldn't complain.
