What about the hardware, will that be the same for March and September
? or can that also change, due to some issue with the developer
I am not a developer in the embedded space, but I dont mind updating
the phone with new software (kernel, apps, etc.), whenever one is
released. And I am also fine with it not working sometimes, but it
will be difficult to buy a new phone in September, coz some chip in
the developer version doesnt work as expected.
