HTC Software Update Process

I caught this on my Blinkfeed and found it interesting, especially the part about the chipset manufacturer: "If the chipset manufacturer decides to support the new version of Android on a particular chipset, they create the necessary drivers and make optimizations per that chipset." That statement leads me to conclude that the chipset manufacturer can decide not to support the new version, and I have to wonder how many times that has slowed the process. In any event, props to HTC for trying to be as transparent as possible about the one thing that drives so many Android users crazy.
