He has a point though, ICS has been out for months and only now phones are receiving the update.

If someone doesn't have a Nexus then he's screwed.

Like always, the carrier releases these updates. Since the nexus is google based, it comes and gets updates asap.

Knowledge is power!

He has no point. Different configs from different manufacturers so that they can differentiate themselves along with various carrier requirements lead to the spread out time table of updates.

Not to mention that these OEMs don't see the huge profit margins like Apple and would rather release a new piece of hardware instead of spending money to code a new piece of software.

Except that between time of announcement and rollout, Vivid users are actually getting their updates about when iPhone users got iOS 5. Also, it's nice when a software update actually adds features instead of taking them away, like how iOS 5 removed 4 and below iPhones from being able to use Siri.

It's not really taking away if they didn't have it to begin with

Prior to iOS five, Siri was an app on the app store available to all iPhones.

First honest iPhone user to ever post on here congrats sir but we do need to step your phone game up to android. We don't do glass unless its gorilla.

iPhones use Gorrilla Glass, their glass comes from Corning.

I got a phone with 4G, flash, a dual core processor, and a 4+ inch screen the day I wanted too, not 12-18 months after every other phone on the market...

Silly sheep, go wack00f to a Mac commercial.

They STILL dont have real 4G, just a lying icon that ATT slaps on to fool dumb iLemmings.

It's LTE for the Vivid.

HTC did a good job, they're one of the first to ICS actually. Samsung just recently released ICS, this has been released for a week or two already.
