A weak argument, really. RIM has done the same thing. The released the 9800, only to release OS7 a few months later and the Torch (or any other older BB) wasn't able to upgrade to OS7, only devices that launched with OS7 were capable of using it. So, to quote you "way to treat the early adopter fanbase"
But, RIM didn't learn from that, they are releasing BB10 in about 6 months, and guess what, only devices released with BB10 will support BB10, so all of the users that bought the new devices to get OS7 are going to be screwed again! Way to go, RIM.
