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.

Of course that would never work though, since then last year's product would more openly compete with this years product, since the hardware doesn't improve as quickly as the software does.

Picture this:

Truly open software and hardware on platforms that are flexible with VM technology. Game over.
