One of the significant disadvantages of being an early adopter of any new technology is what comes after it, specifically, the improvements that every technology experiences over time. Such appears to be the case for those who rushed to pick up the G1--the first Android phone on the market--as questions have begun to pop up over whether the device is in line to see its last update.
Like any device, the G1 has certain physical limitations--only so much stuff can fit in the case, and among the stuff being stuffed in is its memory. Apparently, according to one of Google's developers, not enough memory was stuffed when the stuffing was good, and now G1 owners may find themselves short on updates.
