Do we know anything about motorola nexus 2 that may carry android 3.0 gingerbread?
How can they stop 3rd party UI's when it's an open standard? Surely Htc, Moto etc. can still offer the third party UI's, just not pre installed? And agree with below comments, I think Android has to slow down a bit because people are feeling a little left behind.

Spikey, 01 Jul 2010This is why I'm putt off by Android, constant changes, battles to get older handsets updated a... moreYou mean iPhones will stay crap for long
And when it does get an OS update it'll be unusable (read: lolOS 4 on lolPhone 3G)
Ahhhhh what it means by 1.5, 1.6, 2.1, 2.2 its not a hi-end phone? And they said 3.0 Is a hi-end phone crazy!!! Then what's, next super hi-end, next extra super hi-end phone!!!! lol.......
This is why I'm putt off by Android, constant changes, battles to get older handsets updated and now this. I can imagine its hard to feel valued as an Adroid adopter when your handset is practically out of date the second you get it. Say what you want about Apple and iPhone but at least the way they keep things simple means that your handset gets a decent amount of longevity.
This is the reason why I'm still watching from the sideline. That is why getting a hi-end Android phone is not a good idea.
Taking away 3rd party UI's will only force phone companies to concentrate more on hardware specs.
iPhone 5 will be copying its "revolutionary features" from this. ;)
