Samsung Galaxy Discover to launch in U.S. sans TouchWiz
The Samsung Galaxy Discover will be discovered in the U.S. for the two aforementioned pre-paid carriers, without the TouchWiz UI running on top of Android. That means that buyers will be getting a purely stock Android experience. Neither pricing nor availability has been announced and the device has yet to be posted on the Net10 or Straight Talk web site.
For those interested in stock Android but would prefer a phone with more meat om its bones, there is the Google Nexus 4, which is still listed as being in stock at the Google Play Store. Sprint still carries the Samsung GALAXY Nexus for $99.99 on contract, with Android 4.1. At Verizon, the model is EOL.

Huh? In what way? A low end device for budget-conscious consumers. What would you expect?

Basically all the cheap phones with gingerbread on them will now come with ICS, thus being 2-3 versions behind as usual.

most people who buy low-end phones really don't care about the OS. If you wanted the newest OS, you would probably go towards a highend phone or one that lots of people use)
A notable exception is(or was)... me...
My old phone(Optimus T) currently runs android 4.1.2 flawlessly, and is my backup phone
