    You were clearly making 2 points regarding Android upgrades



    1. The absence of upgrades

    2. The difficulty in finding available upgrades.



    You focus on 1, and seem to ignore/deny that you said number 2, which is what jfanning is discussing, and has shown is not a difficult process.



    How do you define "available"?

    The definition of "availability" is irrelevant, as points 1 and 2 are orthogonal.



    The frequency of updates is irrelevant to the ease of updating once the update is presented to the user.



    you, by implication, and jrgosta, in his post, state that the process of updating, once the update is presented to the user, is difficult, and apparently it is not.



    The fact that you two wish to conflate 2 issues is somewhat confusing.



    Additionally, I am not sure why you are making the argument that Android sucks because updates are limited. Apple is not much better.



    I just checked, and my iPhone is running OS 3.1.3, which according to iTunes is the most recent version. That means that Apple, in close to a year, has issued 4 updates. That does not seem to be flurry of updates to me.

    I wholeheartedly agree! However, it is crucial in a discussion of Android vs. iPhone that we note how unavailable or poorly accessible Android updates are in general.

    Clearly you haven't/can't/won't read and have settled on an opinion based on what you wish to be the case, rather than the facts. I'm done with this discussion.
