Google is prioritizing their "own" phones for the updates.Bad news for other android users. This is why android sucks.

Google and Facebook have the biggest databases about people and can sale them for millions of dollars. If Facebook have more information than Google then Google will lose some money. I really think you have missed the war between these two giants of the internet so we are far from being childish or not !
[deleted post]well said .. no one could have said it better keep up the great comments

If they want to have a childish tit for tat argument with facebook let them do it with their own online product material, not on a phone that I've bought & paid for that has always had this functionality until Googles childish reaction. I appreciate facebook may be just as childish but I didn't buy a 360 quid phone from them..
@Tomas, yep I agree totally. I have the Legend & when I saw the process involved including segmenting my microsd card (something which I had no clue how to do) I gave up. Thankfully I eventually got the update to 2.2 I was waiting for so I could install apps to SD card & free up space but I wasn't happy to have a go & risk bricking my phone myself..

And it is important to have as many consumers as you can to sell them after !
So don't blame Google without blaming Facebook !
Anonymous, 23 Feb 2011Wtf! How bout us desire user? Oh well whatever.Sorry, you must wait for HTC to give you update, not Google. =\
Anonymous, 23 Feb 2011I'm with you on this. You shouldn't have to root a phone to get an update - it should be made ... moreYeah, rooting is pretty complicated. It's a relief when you finally flash the update, but I was so worried that I was gonna brick my device. I have a HTC Dream that has been stuck on 1.6. I had to download the RC7 Europe image, then activate telnetd, flash a recovery image, then a new SPL radio, backup and then CyanogenMod. Now that I got it running on 2.2, I'm happy. But the problem is that normal customers won't do this. If they get stuck on an old version on Android, they will complain as they have every right to do so.
The good news is that besides the CLIQ XT being stuck on 1.6 with no hope of Froyo, all these nightmares are starting to be left behind. They still exist though. I hope Google can lay down the law sometime so things like this cease to happen.

You shouldn't have to root a phone to get an update - it should be made available to customers. I've looked at the processes for rooting android phones & it seems a lot more complicated than, say, jailbreaking an iphone (something else I think you shouldn't have to do when you've paid so much for a phone).
I also don't like that sentence that Google don't like that facebook contacts don't use Android's own contact system so have removed that functionality. That sounds just like a certain fruit based phone when it comes to unecessary control over how users sync their phones etc.
Android seems to have a lot of these controlling elements for what is supposed to be, an open source OS...
Seems you cannot get away from big tech companies forcing their ideas of what you should or shouldn't be able to do with your stock phone onto their customers...
great news for the Nexus One users!
how about the htc desire users which is the same phone is htc going to leave us only with froyo?
AnonD-1180, 23 Feb 2011Yes! But you can try rooting your phone!I know that but this is not the way. It's risky, you may not succeed and many things in your phone may not work. The customer should have instant updates out of the box.
