Funny thing, the are pushing the update to Gingerbread today, looks like you'll get that update you were complaining about.

I am glad they are synching up the versions for phone and tablet, should make it a lot easier for developers so they dont have to do double work and adapt an app to be implemented on both platforms.

A mashup of Gingerbread and Honeycomb, Ice Cream Sandwich will run on both tablets and smartphones and is Google's attempt to end this business of every phone running a different version of Android.
I really hope Google can do this.

Will there be unification also for devices with ultra small screens?
Such as e.g. WIMM, website: http://www.wimm.com/apps.html
They say something about Micro apps. (App fragmentation again)

THIS!

I use a Palm pre ... yea it's old but it works for now, the onyl thing keepign me from getting an android atm is that carriers and manifacturers don't support them. my wife's samsung intercept and it is still on 2.1 ... nwo you can buy the phone with 2.2 on virgin mobile (her carrier) but i have to root the phone to update it myself possibly brickign it... or wait for the carrier to allow the update... or buy her a new phone with it

this is my biggerst gripe and the reason I am not on android now (aside from liking WebOS better... btu obviously i dont' have this option much longer) . I want carriers and phone makers to be contractually obligated to push updates as soon as they are available... seems now they don't so that peopel have to buy a new phone to get tthe new versions or wait

The issue is that both carriers and phone manufacturers see the phone OS level as a "feature". If they were to update your wife's phone to 2.2, then there would be less incentive for you to purchase the new shiny model with 2.2 / 2.3. They want people to continue buying a new phone every year, and the best way to do that is to limit the expandability of older phone so that the user is forced to buy new for something as simple as a software update.
