Google "Google is making another attempt to fix the Android update problem at the Google I/O conference. The plan is to give smartphone, tablet and chip manufacturers earlier opportunities to adapt their current and new hardware to forthcoming Android versions. Google said that it hopes that this will allow users to receive their updates faster. To achieve this, Android executive Hugo Barra announced a 'Platform Development Kit'." I have my doubts.

Oh and Google should enforce a rule that if any device is released with a new authorised Android version (call that V+1), then all future new Android models from any company must ship with either version V or V+1. The fact that we're still seeing brand new Android 2.3.X models being released just as 4.1 is coming out really gets my goat.

There should be only 1 simple rule from Google: Give each phone the option of running vanilla or chocolate fudge with sprinkles and salt at boot.
