I doubt it is interesting. I read numerous explanations from developers as to the labor required to create an OS.

First of all, you're assuming that an earlier release would inherently mean less quality. Therefore, a release that happens more than 4 months later should be of higher quality, right?

Exhibit A:

I also am compelled to out that the GB update for the Inc was "garbage". It was long over due, and when it came it was so bad they had to pull the update and rework. Asus updated their tablet in January, so clearly it is possible. Your appeal to quality is null.

I did exactly what you claim will fix the issue, and my NEW phone was on the same version as my OLD phone more than 4 months after an update was promised.

I saw you heading down the road of entitlement, and I do take offense. Somehow demanding that promises be kept, and that a product I am literally going to spend thousands of dollars on and use daily be kept current makes me an entitled American brat? Bravo on the spin, there's a cable news channel you could work for and fit right in.

I agree, but it could be better if I could take advantage of the features available only with the OS version I was promised 9 months ago.
