"Google’s Android Update Alliance is already dead," reports Jamie Lendino for PCMag.com.

Shocking

…that anyone would have believed in this pipedream in the first place. 

Maybe it’s a bit unfair of Lendino to call the Alliance “dead” — but it’s hard to figure out what else he should say. He talked to Motorola, Samsung, Sprint, T-Mobile, and Verizon — not a single one would address the pledge announced at Google I/O. Meanwhile, AT&T, HTC, and LG apparently won’t comment about anything at all.

According to Andy Rubin at I/O, the details of the Alliance were more or less a formality being sorted out. “Over the next few weeks, we’ll figure it out.”

That was seven months ago. There’s apparently been zero progress. Remarkably, maybe less than zero.

Google has really perfected “over-promise, under-deliver” with this one.
