off topic. I know this is IMPOSSIBLE, but if google were to pick apple as the next nexus manufacturer. It should be named iNexus :))

Just my reverie that apple should try the BEST OS.

I would love to have an iPhone with an Android OS.

yes you can get an iPhone 3G to run android..

but seriously, google should slow down a little.. improve ICS first, or at least let 2011 devices that are promised by manufacturers to taste ICS get it first before launching a new OS.. but i have a strong feeling that this will be a 4.1 like others have mentioned, not 5.0, to address some legal IP issues, like the new lock screen etc..

the oems are not moving fast enough to push ics. I think this is pissing off google because they feell like they need to push another huge update to compete with windows 8,and ios new updates this year

not only the OEMs, but carriers as well.. they have to put their bloatwares and stuff, making it even longer for a device to be updated..

but by the time JB (oh, no, that looks like Justin Bieber..) arrives, almost all phones would be out of warranty already and many can choose to just root..

Something we notice
- New Android Phone release with latest Gingerbread (Later getting ICS update).
Which imply most release phone still comes with Gingerbread. And now we're already talking about Jelly Bean. I mean come on Google give us a break. Let Ice Cream Sandwich flow smoothly this year.

No disrespect to people shelling out upto $500 in favor of OS development , but yeah it hurts to know that the new phone I held today will be outdated few weeks later .
Also w/o any possible future for upgrades as its very hard for my OEM to develop a ugly skin and implement it on latest iteration of OS .
Google should now improve ICS to such extent that all Gingerbreads's , h/w qualified , are upgraded to 4.x , later they may introduce 5th version .
