    Take a trip with me down the rabbit hole...

    What if, WHAT IF, AT&T has been sitting on announcing more Android phones because the next phone they're announcing features Froyo? There's still that HTC slider out there that nobody knows anything about. Absolutely nothing, which is strange in this industry.

    *insert dramatic music*

    Maybe.

    AT&T released an Android app earlier today, so it could mean they are waiting til the I/O tomorro to announce more phones.

    They released an android app? What does it do?

    I'm really hoping they'll make their announcements in conjunction with I/O. That would be awesome!

    Cosnider that when 2.1 came out it took HTC almost 3 months to write the sense UI. That would mean unless they plan to announce a google experence phone, which would shock me, the new phone would be 3-5 months down the line to have 2.2 and sense on it.



    If we are going to talk about whacked out theories here is another one to ponder.
    AT&T and apple are so joined at the hip that the reason the android phone released and the one announced is running 1.5 is to give apple more talking points on fragmentation. Since newer devices running an older OS help to fragment.

    On point A... Shhh... he's in a happy place right now, don't bring him back.

    On point B... Conspiracy theories FTW! But... the Backflip's siblings launched with 1.5 on other networks. It's a Blur issue...

    I know it is a Blur issue with the backflip. And just a stupidity issue with the aero.

    TRUE, but they could say they launched it in 1H 2010. :)

    How about continuing that delusion...

    What if At&T is part of the Google IO keynote and they announce IMMEDIATE availability of a Froyo 2.2 Nexus Two????

    LOL, ok, I laughed so hard I almost peed myself...back to reality

    I actually don't think it's that big of a leap. As for the fragmentation thoughts, waiting for Froyo would actually help AT&T to beat back the fragmentation if they release the rest of their handsets running it...

    You do realize that the one device they've released specifically had an older version of the OS on it right? And they've got such a bloated version of that older OS that an upgrade to ANY newer version is going to cause people to have to wipe their current installs.

    And when they finally do make that miserable update for their backflop customers it will once again be just as bloated and loaded as to cause further updates to be nigh impossible.

    Ok that second part was merely a guess, but this is the thread of dreams, but admit it, mine is more plausible! :D

    So yer sayin' they've not learned from their past transgressions & are now moving to make things right? :eek: I thought this was a thread about suspending disbelief? ;)
