Microsoft slams Android updates

Microsoft’s Windows chief, Terry Myerson, isn’t pulling any punches against Android this week. Speaking during a keynote appearance at Microsoft’s Ignite conference in Chicago, Myerson knocked Google’s Android update plans. “Google ships a big pile of… code, with no commitment to update your device,” Myerson said, with an intentional pause that left the audience laughing. “Google takes no responsibility to update customer devices and refuses to take responsibility to update their devices, leaving end users and businesses increasingly exposed every day they use an Android device.”

He’s completely right, of course, but his words does have a souer taste when you look at Microsoft’s Windows Phone and Windows RT update history and near future.
