KDDI decides to abort the OS update of "IS01" and concludes that "realization is impossible"

KDDI announced in March this year as "smart book"IS 01"OS update will be discontinued.

Although it was expected to upgrade to Android 2.1 or later, we have reached the conclusion that realization is impossible.

* We added that the IS01 update was physically difficult.

Details are as below.
According to the official Twitter of KDDI Public Relations Department, although we have been discussing about OS update of "IS01", it seems that it was concluded that realization is impossible as a result of considering the hardware design value, operability, performance etc.

Not only was it compatible with 1Seg for the first time as an Android terminal, but it was a very interesting terminal such as equipped with a large screen 5 inch liquid crystal and QWERTY keyboard, which is a shame for this decision.

The Android smartphone which was decided to be released on November 26'IS03' is updated from Android 2.1 to 2.2doing.
