Scratching my head now...
So what is it with these designs that they cannot simply release with current Android versions then upgrade when a later version comes out?
Is it simply that OS 2.2 is sub-par for the task (what does that say of already released tablets?), a marketing and oneupmanship strategy of delivering with the latest available or is there some more fundamental issue?
I find it hard to believe any company would want to miss the Christmas sales rush and I'd have thought there would be a Hardware Abstraction Layer or some 'driver' mechanism to allow Android to sit on any device, so easy enough to upgrade later.
