Would be kind of a dumb decision and wouldn't make sense business wise.
Problem with Android is, being open source AND extremely profitable for carriers and manufacturers, they no longer feel like updating all of their phones beyond a very short time span. The issue with lack of updates (whether seen through the eyes of the owner or the manufacturer) will ALWAYS happen. It sucks and it's unfortunate, but it's just the way Android is these days. Looks like the Triumph still has great dev. support so at least be happy for that vs. all those Motos with locked bootloaders.
