Why is Samsung shooting itself on the foot by not satisfying its users with prompt updates? Froyo fever.


Few months ago I broke the screen on my Nexus One and was forced to buy a new phone. Froyo or Android 2.2 came just before I bought my Vibrant.

I used to a have a Blackjack back in the day, and was happy with Samsung, battety life was good, reception was never a problem, so I figured, nothing could go wrong.

Well, I found out Samsung sucks at updating android devices. You may say why does it matter, very few folks care what froyo brings? True, but very influential people! Chances are that if you know what froyo offers, you are a go to guy for technical questions at work, home or wherever. In other words, you are free salesman for Samsung. And now you’re pissed off and will never recommend another Samsung phone in your life.

How many people people believe AOL was killed this way, by ignoring the needs of techie folks?
