Who is going to buy any Samsung Android phone now?
According to the O2 forums:
"Samsung UK continue to push for this but confidence on the change is low as Samsung HQ will be launching new devices on Android 2.0 in Q1."
With the reputation Samsung is going to get for refusing to update the Galaxy, what customers would actually buy a brand new Samsung Android phone next year? They shouldn't bother releasing another handset, the Android faithful users will not touch a phone which is unlikely to receive any updates.
