So, Google has admitted to two separate texting bugs in Android which can lead to SMS messages going to the wrong person (one opens an unexpected conversation when you select a conversation; the other just flat-out sends the message to the wrong person).
So, what happens next? I think that this could be the crisis to test Google's whole update model.
You see, currently, Android updates have to be, in almost all cases, implemented and authorised by both the phone manufacturer and the telecom. This frequently takes a long time, or does not happen at all; there are a lot of people stuck on Android 1.6 or 2.1.
Clearly, this sort of thing is more important than an OS update that adds more feature; it's a fix for a major flaw. If Google can't force manufacturers and telecoms to fix it in a timely fashion, they're going to seriously harm the reputation of their platform.
What happens next will also be an interesting dry-run for the inevitable day when a serious, critical security flaw is found in Android. Google really needs to be able to deal with this sort of thing without having to wait three months for Vodafone or whoever to approve their updates.
