Verizon and others would love you to upgrade your device so often. Usually if you want latest and greatest, that would be only way.

For example, device I bought in late 2011, came with Android 2.3 and had only one upgrade - to 4.0. Yet I'm still on the contract, and there were 4 Android releases.
Thanks to mods and CM, I got very stable version of Android 4.3, and I intend to keep my device for a while.
Thanks to Verizon and HTC, I got not much for my money.

This is one area where Apple excels, their device commonly have up to 3 yrs of updates.

Dell has one less thing to worry about: quarterly profits and revenue. This is right thing for struggling or declining companies. "analysts" won't bug them every moth how their market is shrinking and sales declining. Bet employees will feel safer too without threats of layoffs every time they don't meet "expectations"
