Except for those devices that are not upgraded.

For many of those there will be CyanogenMod 9. I have Android 4 on a bootable SD card for my Nook Color. It's very early in the development process but looks quite promising.

Dun, dun, dunnnnn.....

Thats the crux of it alright. I'm just happy I'm not in that boat. Morotola has said that ICS is coming to the Xoom (eventually).

Apple has left devices behind as well. It's not just android.

Don't remind me, I'm still peeved about Siri on my iPhone 3GS.

:backtotop Android is a major platform, I sure something is in the works.

When it releases, thats another story.

We stated that 2.3 would merge the field with Android devices. It's always the same story. The bottom line is I couldn't care less buy developers do and they want to have stability. This is something the Android community keeps saying "soon" on but something always fragments it between the phone makers and the phone companies. At this point I'm not longing drinking the kool aid and I need industry proof that this is happening. That will only come from developer app support.

But Draconis is right. It's not a matter of if, but when, there will be an android client.

In my day job, we are going through heck with Android 2.1-2.3 compatibility and 3.0 and now 4.0. I am not generally a fan of Apple but have to admit, their stricter environment makes life easier for developers. Didn't think so at first but now I know.

Google is recognizing that they were too open and free with phone manufacturers, letting them run amok with customizations that caused headaches for developers, so Google has been taking steps with new development tools, policies, and partnerships with phone manufacturers to standardize the Android experience and establish accelerated update schedules for newer phones when new Android OS releases are made available.

Even with those changes, there's still a larger percentage of Android devices on Froyo than on Gingerbread, while the number of devices on Honeycomb and ICS doesn't even come close to the Gingerbread number.

I think at some point app developers have to make a decision to not support older Android versions, just like many web sites stopped supporting IE6 a couple of years ago, or for brand new apps, have to make a decision that they will only support ICS and later.

It's hard to say when... it could be months... but there will be a Nomad Android app.

Ten months later I find this post amusing. :D
