What happens when announcements don’t have that wow factor? Even big companies suffer from boring announcements or botched product launches. In this week’s episode we talk about two announcements that should have been larger than life, but fell on pretty much deaf ears.

Please sir, can I have some more over the air updates? Not if you’re using the majority of Android phones. As a follow up to yesterday’s show, we’re lucky to have the creator of the chart that puts the Dickensian state of upgrade support across Android phones on display, Michael Degusta, with us on inThirty. We get to the bottom of how and why he took on this topic and find out what version of Android those big laser-shooting-Transformer-type-things from the Droid commercials run.
Ice Cream Sandwich hasn’t even had time to melt and someone out there on the internet has the nerve to create a chart showing just how infrequently all those Android devices actually get the latest version of the mobile OS.
Michael DeGusta, the man who laid out the sad state of Google’s hardware support in red, orange, yellow, and green joins the inThirty crew and our guest host Kelly Guimont to discuss whether Android is a stop or a go and how the carriers, manufacturers and Google factor in to this traffic jam.
Tomorrow we’ll post an interview with Michael that covers why he created the chart, how he found the data, and whether or not he was inspired by the bygone days of the color coded terror alert system.
