lol... at least apple updates you can have on 2 years old phone.
it's too much from google. there's still not many phones on ICS and again new version.
i'm android user, but too much about all these versions. anyway, if you compare what microsoft did with nokia, it's still not so bad with android :)

LOL Here come the Complaints about why Jellybean won't come to their phone and how "Outdated" ICS is now even though just a week ago they were claiming that it is the best. LOL

Oh also, 12 Core Gpu has just been announced (for the Nexus 7) so I guess Quad Core is obsolete in phones now too. Here come "We want 12 Core Phones" why only Quad Core? LOL

This will be good.

Android updates look okay but they won't come to most of the devices...... The galaxy nexus is the only phone which will get updates on time

As for the rest of the major brands, my guess is that HTC, Samsung and Sony will gradually offer updates more or less at the same timeframe, and LG some time later.

jelly bean now looks enticing. Think its time to abandon my Nokias and jump onto the Android bandwagon.

But then question is which will get Jelly Bean first? I certainly dont want google phones, neither do I connect with Samsung. Leaves HTC who are always late with updates.
