Why is it always 'the coming weeks' with Google?

Could mean the ATO goes out the end of this week and continues over the coming weeks, or it could mean the OTA will start in a few weeks.

But I'm happy to wait, we've got stuff to tide us over for now.

iirc:

days = weeks
weeks = months
months = go fishing

This "a few weeks" crap is really starting to get old.

This is BS. Jan 6 they will announce Honeycomb/MotoTab while Nexus One owners are still waiting for 2.3 OTA?



So what is the true developer device? Nexus One? S? MotoTab for Honeycomb whether its 2.4 or 3.0?

They said the same thing about our OTA when they announced Froyo. I think was pushed about a month later.

I don't really care about the OTA but I'd like some updated drivers so AOSP would run smoothly.

I honestly expect more out of Google.

I mean, I do systems engineering and I totally understand what its like to develop firmware and software development, but this is google. Theyve got armies of engineers and talented people who I think are passionate of their product.


For them to jumble and bobble these dates, is this a case of internal politics between program teams, bad marketing strategy, or is google human like everybody else and cannot execute a software release cleanly and on time?


Take a look at CM. They don't promise dates and work their tails off to get you a stable release. And they're not getting at 10% pay raise across the board. Talk about passion (pun intended).

I would just like to know when they changed the statement that the N1 would get all future updates ahead of all other devices...

I would say that the delay will be like the one with Froyo. Every time a new build is tested, new bugs will emerge. It's frustrating, but they'll be working hard on it.

Technically no other phone has received the 2.3 "update" ahead of the Nexus One.

The Nexus S "launched" with 2.3
