I don't think anyone thought they would refresh before then. I'd like to see a bi-annual software update that drives more interest in the devices during the off-season. A software update is far easier to do incrementally than ramp up hardware production. Unfortunately, I don't think this will happen.
I'm curious why they didn't get a perfect score. HW, SW, media, apps? I think it's telling that the knock-off devices fall just short. Why innovate when you can just pull into second place with the equivalent of a copy machine.
