Having the option of so many different phones is great for consumers and android, but it is also going to be a big problem. I am seeing this first hand with my milestone as it is not that old of a phone, but it is only going to be able to (maybe) get 2.2 and no higher, and same goes for many other phones other than the high enders. Tons of phones are going to have compatibility issues with android updates and this will be a sore spot for many people as updates are going to roll out very slowly for them or not at all. Look at Sony's xperia 10. Top of the line phone, but it is stuck at android 1.6 because sony/rogers is either having issues with 2.1 compatibility, or they just don't care.
Good for those who have compatible phones now, but what is going to happen in 6 months when new versions of the android os roll out and those with Desires and Galaxy s' can't get and update because there phone isn't powerful enough anymore.
