Really? So you're suggesting that, in a market dictated by having the "Next biggest thing" they just stick to a one a year release cycle BEFORE they have any brand clout?
If that happened they might have some nice sales at the first launch, but then they would lose sales quickly as people jumped towards the new Motorola/Samsung device.
Not only that, but in the US, the carriers still dictate phone releases for pretty much EVERY company but Apple because no other company has the brand clout Apple has. Sure, the manufacturers could try playing hardball, but then the carriers would just pick someone else.
You could argue they could get around this by making their own OS so they weren't just another "android" maker. But then you'd have yet another device launch without ANY ecosystem to support it.
