Android users have long complained about most Android vendors for implementing software updates from Google bit too late. The reason is because most vendors tend to use a customized version of Android and can’t update immediately, given the work they have to do to incorporate a new version of Android OS from Google. However, this may finally change now.
Vendors such as Samsung run customized version of Android on their devices. So when Google rolls out a new version of Android, these vendors have to work out the details of adding their own customized features to the new version and only then releasing it. This rather irks the users who have to wait for months to get a new version of Android after its release by Google.
However, this may change now. Android Open Source Project’s head, Jean-Baptiste Queru has now stated in a recent blog post that they are working on bringing a clean, unaltered version of Android to devices other than Google’s line of Nexus. This essentially means that Android users will now be able to install new updates from Google on their own, without having to wait for their respective vendors to implement them.
As a start, Queru said, a clean version of Android is being brought to Sony Xperia S. Other Android users will have to wait a while but we are sure that if indeed the scope of this is widened, this can mean faster updates across the world of Android, making the users very happy.
