A lot of android devices are just now getting ICS or still stuck on ICS even though jelly bean is now at 4.2. This is going to cause even more devices to become unsupported.

What do you mean by unsupported? How does a phone having 4.04, or 4.1.2, or 4.2 have anything to do with support? ICS and above are what most apps are designed for. The only main thing I see would be Google Now and really how is that any different from Apple not having Siri on the iPhone 4? So is the iPhone 4 unsupported then? Should Google just send out half a$$ed updates with the new features removed and still call it a "new" OS...al la Apple?

Mxyzptlk certainly has a lot to comment on this article. Are you concerned about the unlimited genius of Google?

Anyone else find it astonishing that smartphones have such good graphics? Soon they will be close with console gaming, by then let's hope console gaming is in the future

Just maybe Google is releasing all these updates to get manufacturers and carriers to get their act together. I for one don't want these updates to slow down, I wouldn't want to wait a year to get iOS 6 and it's bag of disappointment.

You can easily do a build.prop edit and change the Android version

74.5 fps from Adreno 220 ??? That sounds too nice to be true cz my Xperia S has it and only gets about 37.5 fps in nenamark2

Are you on VZW by chance? If so, that's your problem and you need to root! If I can have ICS and JB on a 3 year old EVO then I'm sure there is a Rom for whatever phone you have.

So long as the next Nexus is produced by Sony or HTC with top specs, I don't care about how soon KLP is released.

Its all money game that google/service porvider/device makers is playing guys. They dont even care about costumers like apple do. I agree that apple may not be upto the expecations, but have u ever thought? i have apple 3Gs and it got updated to ios6 its almost four years old. Apple care about there costumers, they release the iOS and they even announce the date when the devices are gonna get updates. My brother is using S-II after a long wait he got ICS recently. Android clams to be open source etc., but why it is not available as soon as it is released?

No mate no company cares about you, and ios6 on the 3gs is water down

So to set it straight Google,apple,microsoft all don't care about you

as excited as i get for updates, alot of phones still dont have ics. Only a few have JB and now theres talks of 5.0? yes google thanks for being ever changing however thats just a bit fast dont you think? lets take it slow enjoy one relationship before looking forward to the next one. If they take more time to dish out updates the updates could be more meaningful.
