The H reports
on Google's plan to alleviate the OS upgrade struggles of Android device vendors. "To achieve this, Android executive Hugo Barra announced a 'Platform Development Kit' (PDK). Barra said that the kit contains the 'required source code' to allow manufacturers to port a forthcoming Android version to their hardware. He added that Google will make the PDK available to its partners two to three months before a new version is released. The executive didn't mention what criteria Google will use to select these partners.
" The PDK is intended to help vendors port newer Android releases to older hardware, then push the update out to end users.
