Folks, I was given the same response from Paul Pike as GBD received via an email. I also sent an email to couple of other folks at LG; they most likely will return an exact verbatim response.
If any of you have contacts at BGR or other Android related blogs, please notify them of the LG Eve update as well, so that we can yet again get good exposure.
It is also worth noticing from the post on Ixibo (http://www.ixibo.com/2010/01/lg-planning-to-launch-around-10-android-phones-in-2010/
) that LG is planning around 10 android phones. My concern as an android app developer is to ensure that all these phones are going to get the proper update which they should and not be left behind with the factory default OS that they were shipped with.
It seems like more and more these wireless manufacturers jump on board a new platform, without knowing and fully understanding them and more importantly not having a long-term support & service strategy developed.
