Google recently announced that it would start releasing monthly Android updates with security fixes and a number of manufacturers, like Samsung have also agreed to release the updates for their devices.
Now HTC’s Jason McKenzie, who is the head of HTC USA has announced on Twitter that monthly Android updates are unrealistic.
When asked on Twitter why HTC are not committing to releasing these monthly security updates, the reason is that they have to get carrier approval for the update.

This of course does not mean that HTC will not release the security updates when they are made available by Google, it just means that getting them out every month may not be possible due to the carriers.
What do you guys think, if Samsung and other companies have committed to getting these updates released on a regular basis, should HTC do the same?
