hmm actually there are quite a few roms for JELLY BEAN on the galaxy s and whilst they arent complete some of them are getting on their way to being so.

Now I suppose it isn't an "official" jelly bean build by samsung, but its a rom made by the developing community which is a huge for android phones.

So many people complain about updates on android etc etc when in actual fact if you really want the update in most cases (if your phone is at least mildly popular) there is usually a rom for it on xda 3months or so after the release..

Mine is in the shop...
I went in with a minor annoyance where a 1 inch drop shut the phone down, when I got it back from the shop it wouldn't charge.
Now it's back in the shop and I can't update.

My next phone is SURELY a Nexus device..... Even if it is NOT coming with SD card slot or curved display (so NO gorilla glass) or small battery (3 reasons why I chose RazrMAXX than GNexus)...
