Plus Xiaomi has successfully exorcised a demon most OEMs with heavily skinned droids haven't, updates.
RT @iNgizi: The need to differentiate works for OEMs, sucks for Android. Even though some of us do need that differentiation.
RT @BenedictEvans: Google has been using services on Android the way MSFT used Office on Windows - a cudgel to enforce OEM compliance. Amazon testing that.
RT @AbuyasLife: But seriously, why should OEMs ditch their flagships after, say, a year? (I'm looking at you, LG & HTC).
Now it makes absolute sense for an OEM to major in customising it's own chips though made by someone else (Apple) or make your own (Samsung)
RT @techweez: Nokia is the first OEM to introduce the three tile interface to a 6 inch device, that's the Lumia 1520
"@AbuyasLife: I can point fingers to several OEMs that dump their devices after releasing them. LG doesn't fall there." oh really?
We're getting past the dark days of Android fragmentation. At least for the serious OEMs.
