On this date in 2008, Android 1.0 was released and the Android Developers Blog celebrates by posting the original announcement; the Android 1.0 SDK was the beginning of the journey to the latest and greatest Android 4.1.1 build...

iOS will be in a perpetual mode of chasing it's own shadow forever ... that's the main reason why they are on a suing spree :)

How about a new Nexus announcement hmm?

Actually, come to think of it, there have been zero rumors surrounding a Nexus device this year. Yeah we got a potential Galaxy nexus 2 blurb and something about Sony or LG joining in, but aside from that?... Nothing. We had TONS of iphone 5 stuff and plenty of Galaxy Nexus leaks and news. What the heck is going on this year? Are they passing this year by?

Guess you missed the news that the next Nexus device might come from multiple OEM's next time around.

Fair enough. Guess I was focused on his 'zero rumors this year' comment that he included in his contradiction.

I'm scared about the fact that there may NOT be a Nexus this year... Maybe Google is just really keeping it under wraps, unlike a lot of people whose entire spec count gets released to the public 5 months before the announcement.

I'm looking forward to it, but for sure it will be let down by specs! Hope, wish it's from SONY.....!

How would it be let down by specs? The Nexus has always set the standard for that generation of high-end Androids. The only thing better than the Galaxy Nexus that was out was the GS2, and it wasn't too big of a gap.

Look where Android is now after 4 years, and look where iphone is after 6 or 7 years. Google obviously cares more about what their customers are getting compared to apple.

Have a wonderful 4th birthday Android.

It's not by force bro. I am pretty sure people know by now that both OS are way different. Nobody forces someone to buy a phone, the consumer decides what he/she wants.

No, Project Butter was the codename for the triple buffering and other optimizations to ensure continued smoothness, and was a part of Jelly Bean. It's not next, it's already in there.

Maybe in 2018...lol. Maybe the inspector converted to ios6 and wound up marooned on an alien world for 6 years due to their 'it just work's mapping 'solution'.
