unless you really believe we should be throwing away functional hardware every 1-2 years.

@AC no, I don't believe that but I agree the software release regime is pushing one to that conclusion. The actual innovation at the core of the phone (CPU, Memory, Storage and Battery) is trivial from one "generation" to the next however the lack of software support forces one to consider a 3 year old phone obsolete.
