    They do this on their desktops and notebooks so why would anyone expect their tablet device to differ?

    I think that's awesome as an iPod touch user I have to pay for each major upgrade but not like I'm complaining since they only cost ten bucks. Having a major new one for free that includes folders and multitasking and more is sweet. After all its not like ms or apple offer free desktop os upgrades!

    For me personally, I would rather spend $10 and have them still developing the latest upgrades and enhancements a year or two down the road, than getting it free and them not putting as much effort into an older device.

    Of course when a new device does come out with significant differences Ill upgrade, but I'll still have this one as well. And if I was to sell it, there will be more of a market with continued modern software support and such.

    I'd rather chip in for quality software than free garbage. $10 isn't the end of the world considering that's 2% of the cost of the device.
