Google isn’t upgrading their flagship Nexus One to the new Ice Cream Sandwich flavor of Android. Why? It’s “too old”.
The Nexus One was released on January 5, 2010 — not even two years ago.
Apple often gets dinged for cutting support to older hardware, forcing users to upgrade if they want the latest and greatest software. So I feel it’s necessary to point out that the iPhone 3GS is 7 months older than the Nexus One. And guess what it runs? Apple’s just-released latest and greatest operating system, iOS 5.
I’ve had the iPhone 4 just about a week now. I’m going to post a full review on TechCrunch, hopefully tomorrow. But I wanted to jot down a couple quick things I’ve noticed about the antenna issue here.
- It is definitely real (at least in the phone I have).
- It is definitely only in the lower left corner (the right corner does nothing to degrade the signal).
- At first I thought it might just be that the bars were dropping but the connection was fine. But after some fairly in-depth testing today, that’s not the case. Calls will drop, data will stop.
