PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless And another case of the internet apparently wielding more influence than it seems to. To much dismay, Samsung announced last week that several of its popular smartphones, most notably the Samsung Galaxy S, would not be getting an upgrade to Ice Cream Sandwich. The internet backlash was palpable, and today, word on the street is that Samsung is reconsidering its position.

Why not release new stock firmwares for each device for lets say 12 months, and then build an aosp version and open source all drivers, 5his way you leave the option for the power users to naintain your old devices as long as they want. Sure you wont sell every new device to every power user out there, but knowing rhis, we will feel a lot more conftable buying the next device we teen realy buy from you again.
I would definitely love to buy a device from any vendor, knowing that there will be aosp available when the official life cycle has ended.
