Guess the folks that own older (ie non updateable) 'Droid phones are SOL then.

It does raise a point though, if a serious vuln is found for an older device which a lot of people still use because it has superior functionality to say a Crackberry then should the manufacturers be required to provide a fix?

I recall reading that some older Iphones can still be sent back to Apple for a battery replacement, maybe its time to have a similar system for software vulns?
