Re: Android Updates - New Google Policy

I see the rules took effect on July 23rd, 3 months ago....

Interesting to see if they are being compliant?

Re: Android Updates - New Google Policy

Very interesting article.  I think it is very frustrating for phone users knowing there are updates available out there but are being forced to wait months after a release for their network/manufacturer to make the update available for their phones, forcing a lot of people into rooting their phone and invalidating their warrenties.

Thanks
