Ok, and what does support really mean? Nvidia has not defined this so there is no way to know what they would offer to their vendors. It could be tech support they are talking about and without getting them to say specifically you and I can only guess what that entails. I am not arguing about them giving support but in trying to figure out what exactly they would provide.
Please re-read my quote from NVIDIA engineer above. He said they would support ALL VERSION.
Yes, I still believe Nvidia is to blame. Nvidia has created Android 2.3 & 3.0 for Ventana from link I gave but you will not see this for Harmony anywhere.
The ViewPad 7 is an older ARM11 600 MHz. So you think ViewSonic would rather support an older product than their newer Tegra 2 tablet? Makes very little sense to me. The ViewPad 10 is Atom (x86) 1.66 GHz. This is very different from an ARM based tablet which are the ones being sold the most. How many people are buying x86 tablets versus ARM ones? Gtab is the highest end ARM tablet that ViewSonic offers today. Really makes no sense for them to cut support on their latest tablet product.
Android 2.3 is out and many Chinese tablets are being upgraded to the newer version but all Harmony tablets will stay stuck with 2.2. I will like to see how you blame the other Harmony tablet makers for not upgrading their tablets too. Android 3.x will get released to everyone once Android 4.x gets finished. So, Ok we can leave that alone for now because only the big, name brand companies are allowed access to 3.x source.
Well, ViewSonic needs updated drivers to make proper firmware release so very little use having someone testing and bug reporting when ViewSonic cannot get latest 2.3 drivers for their Harmony tablet. How could they release newer firmware without first getting updated Nvidia drivers? Without updated drivers, things would not work or the OS would run badly.
I only know that Roebeet said he work with Viewsonic up to Jan/Apr release. My best guess is on bug report, testing, troubleshooting, the things he's doing now.
Either one can be at fault but to me it looks like a Nvidia issue. Nvidia has never said specifically that they would make drivers for Harmony tablets and only used a general statement to say they would support all their vendors. Until they define what that support means it is impossible to know exactly what they would provide. I do not believe any Harmony tablet will get 2.3 or 3.x official firmware but time will tell for sure. Already been about 7 months since 2.3 was released to the public and why do the Harmony tablets not have it yet when Chinese tabs are switching over already?
