The original iPad is nearly two years old, runs iOS 5 well, and will probably get a few more significant OS upgrades. The Galaxy Tab is one year old and it can?t run the latest version of Android. – Marco Arment
This is one of my biggest problems with Android and it’s one the always gets swept of the table.
When I post stuff like this on Twitter, people of fast to point me to some xda forum about how to hack and root the latest android built on a Motorola Nitro S X E (credit to the Android Name Generator, which brings us to a whole other point). But what you nerds and geeks are not seeing is that normal people buy Android phones as well. And those are the people that get stuck with an old OS, only 1 year after they bought the phone or the tablet.
