Not going to happen

December 18, 2011

Michael Crider at Android Community has a request to Google:

Google, here’s a sentiment straight from the end-users to you: one Nexus phone a year is not enough. Neither is one form factor, because not everyone wants a slate phone with a gigantic screen and no keyboard. If you want to continue to market Android as the future of mobile computing, you need to take back some of the control you wielded in 2008 and 2009. Begin demanding that carriers and manufacturers make “clean” Android available to consumers, free of any carrier or manufacturer additions.

What he’s asking for is basically the fragmentation of Android, that’s the opposite of what Google is trying to solve with Ice Cream Sandwich and Nexus phones. And to demand “clean” Android is the opposite of what carriers and phone makers are trying to do, they wanted to be different by adding their own crap-wares and complicated UIs on top.

Good luck asking for the impossible, it ain’t going to happen.
