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.

is that one of the smaller but ambitious OEMS (Sony, I'm talking to you) will see the opportunity to warm in the Google IO sunlight and implement a policy of announcing availability of updates just after next Android releases. Getting the message their phones are as good as Nexus devices in that regard may mean benefits worth the effort.
