An unfortunate, but true statement.....

Great post http://theunderstatement.com/post/11982112928/android-orphans-visualizing-a-sad-history-of-support

Talks about how manufacturers don't support their Android phones much past the OS they release with. It needs people to root their phone and run something like CyanogenMod to get to the current OS....

Why don't manufacturers focus on making great hardware and just run stock Android? I am sure Motorola will start doing so once they get acquired by Google. How long is it going to take the others to understand that we buy their phones because of the hardware performance/features they can provide - not their silly UI modifications....
