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.

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.

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.

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.

It will likely be 4.1 not 5.0

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.
