They should Develop ICS and Help OEM to push updates to their Devices rather tham Releasing New OSes!
This will only increase the Android Fragmentation problem!

I would leave it to the pros there sport.
Google has more insight into the industry than any of us spectators.
Have some faith, Google knows what they are doing.

brother you are right. you buy an ics phone and three months later its using an out dated os. what happens is that some of such customers would wait for the latest firmware from their manufacurers while others would buy new phones. so premature updates are good for the manufacturers because it sell them phones. but not for the consumer.

like i give a sh!t about the consumer.
i want updates as fast as i can flash them.
i want the cutting edge. i do not care if the iDiots out there think the new OS is "buggy", "half-baked", or "premature". i know that the new OS is new, and is a work in progress. i want to help with that development.

ICS is already developed...now they need to make it portable like windows OS...standardize all hardware interfaces so that users can flash latest and greatest of android on their own.

nowwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwww you have spoken. but unfortunately google will never put standards to manufacturers bcs google wants to be as Open as possible.

My bet is still on Jelly Bean being 4.1 - 4.0 was a major transition and given the adoption rates (abysmal) to this point, I'll bet they make this more like a Froyo to Gingerbread addition rather than the larger leaps to Honeycome and ICS no matter the features they add.

Ha, what is the pastry name for android 40?
5. rg987 (Posts: 130; Member since: 29 Dec 2011)
it will definitely be 4.1, since 5.0 is not gonna release till this fall(as said in the article), then it means that they will provide any other iteration below 5.0, they can't sit with 4.0 on the market for the whole year. apple will eat them up otherwise.

Apple will not release another OS until their next phone comes out in October-ish. They would not give 4S users iOS 6 before the 5(?) came out. That would risk losing the wow factor of the very few new things that will be on the phone.

since when is Ice Cream & Jelly Beans Pastries??????? you meant snacks, buds, not pastries.
10. bayusuputra (Posts: 961; Member since: 12 Feb 2012)
the names are based on desserts, not pastries nor snacks..

"Each Android iteration has been named after a pastry in alphabetical order" read the article stupid

got suggetions for android 6.0... krispy kreme? kaffir lime sorbet?
9. Nanaoallen (Posts: 2; Member since: 27 Feb 2012)
off topic. I know this is IMPOSSIBLE, but if google were to pick apple as the next nexus manufacturer. It should be named iNexus :))
Just my reverie that apple should try the BEST OS.
I would love to have an iPhone with an Android OS.
13. bayusuputra (Posts: 961; Member since: 12 Feb 2012)
yes you can get an iPhone 3G to run android..
but seriously, google should slow down a little.. improve ICS first, or at least let 2011 devices that are promised by manufacturers to taste ICS get it first before launching a new OS.. but i have a strong feeling that this will be a 4.1 like others have mentioned, not 5.0, to address some legal IP issues, like the new lock screen etc..

the oems are not moving fast enough to push ics. I think this is pissing off google because they feell like they need to push another huge update to compete with windows 8,and ios new updates this year
14. bayusuputra (Posts: 961; Member since: 12 Feb 2012)
not only the OEMs, but carriers as well.. they have to put their bloatwares and stuff, making it even longer for a device to be updated..
but by the time JB (oh, no, that looks like Justin Bieber..) arrives, almost all phones would be out of warranty already and many can choose to just root..

Something we notice
- New Android Phone release with latest Gingerbread (Later getting ICS update).
Which imply most release phone still comes with Gingerbread. And now we're already talking about Jelly Bean. I mean come on Google give us a break. Let Ice Cream Sandwich flow smoothly this year.

i dont understand why phones are still launching with GB with the update coming in 2 to 3 months to ics BS just launch the fuking with ICS

No disrespect to people shelling out upto $500 in favor of OS development , but yeah it hurts to know that the new phone I held today will be outdated few weeks later .
Also w/o any possible future for upgrades as its very hard for my OEM to develop a ugly skin and implement it on latest iteration of OS .
Google should now improve ICS to such extent that all Gingerbreads's , h/w qualified , are upgraded to 4.x , later they may introduce 5th version .
