So basically, people will get updates at least every third month?
It's nowhere near long enough in my opinion, considering that smartphones can be usable for much longer than two years.
Catch-measure the pattern (of android releases so far-security releases too) and a handset user can better make their own conclusions as to the degree of marketing being forwarded. (hush-this androider lags on purpose with some) It's all good on this end. Safe.
Should be 5 years.
That would be much better.

Do no evil. Well there's a **** load of money in it so .... Do evil!
Blows my mind that Google can't even make sure their own barely functional phones get updates for more than 3 measly years.
Not true. It's more profitable not to.
Well of course I know that's why. But why aren't they trying to compete with Apple, when they *know* their security track record is laughable? If Apple can do it, why can't Google do it?
