Yeah, cause when a new major version of Anroid comes out, the majority of devices are brought up to date, right?

Hint: No, they aren't. Worse yet, best case scenarion the "majority" of the minority of the phones that will upgrade to a new major release (not minor release like 3.1 to 3.2) often have to wait 6 - 12 months to see the update!

Keep it fair, at least try.

At least with Android you have the option to update the phone yourself.

Gotta admit, if you bought a WP7 phone, you got boned hard just a few months later. With no option but to get a new phone.

Yeah, WP7 was not ideal in terms of functionality parity or longevity.
