And which platform is offering better OS upgrade support than Apple? My original iPad did not get the 2yr later OS upgrade, true. But only a very tiny, tiny percent of Android devices ever get upgrades. I've gotten every Apple upgrade the day it was released.
The iPad 2 is still being sold. So go back a week, and folks were still buying brand new iPad's who's ability to run future iOS versions is the exact same as those buying the new iPad mini a week later. And both customers are buying into an ecosystem that's FAR AND AWAY the one with the best track record of getting OS updates actually on their devices.
Just take a guess when Amazon, will come out with a Kindle HD upgraded to the latest Android.
Come on' folks, some of you aren't even trying with your criticisms.
