 Android in July 2012: Android 4.0 adoption more than doubles - read the full textGoogle has once again published the Android distribution figures and things are looking good for Android 4.0, Ice Cream Sandwich. Of course, some of you might say that it is no longer the latest version of Android and we should be concentrating on Jelly Bean now but it is an important update...

-reject call with sms
-do not disturb(slightly modified silent mode)
-facebook integration
i just dont feel that the other 197 feature will make such a difference, maybe the iphone 5 will be better but it will be just iphone 5 and they will be device dependent feature, like siri.

the thing is , if the processor, ram , and the system partition is not big enough ,it cant run it properly, just like my old moto milestone, i can update it to gingerbread, via custom rom if i want, but froyo is just better and run faster because of hardware limitation.

ICS is great, but many manufacturer's who have sent out upgrades to Gingerbread phones have done a poor job this far. Maybe they instead want people to buy new ones to get a better ICS/JB experience? Samsung and HTC in particularly did a poor effort on their updates of GB phones to ICS.

ICS on Ascend and Transformer is just as stable as GB on any phone. Hopefully Moto's update of RAZR series will be as stable, and not as crappy/buggy as the Sensation/EVO 3D/SII ICS updates have been. making people want to downgrade.

ICS looks good but performs very bad! ICS is to Android as Vista was to Windows, total crap!

So this is saying more than 75% of Android users are 2 versions behind. Fragmentation FTW!!
