I'm an adroid newb.. just wanted to get it out there.... First thing i've noticed now is this worrying trend of us consumers being dependent on the good graces of the manufacturers depending on them for OS upgrades and we all know they never really care or are motivated with providing something for free... It seems like the same problem as the Laptop PC market has with them being slow releasing new drivers making our choices of which Linux or windows one wants to install limited and the negative performance impact that follows. My having to install drivers in compatibility mode on my HTC SHIFT to be able to run win7 on it which is waaay better on such a slow machine rather than the originally bundled vista. SO, to the point. What android smartphone builder are generally considered the best and fastest, most reliable at releasing these new updates Froyo and future versions. If i wanted to buy a real top-of-the-line model which would make the best investment, like will any of them get android 3 updates when it becomes available?
