Help me out,

So Android 4.0 is Ice Cream Sandwich, Android 4.1 is Jellybean.

What will Android 4.2 be called?

Do Google always give a name to their 0.1 updates like they did to Jellybean?

How uninspiring after the iPhone 5 release.

The Nexus is Androids best shot at producing a rival to the iPhone and it fails everytime. Stick as many bells and whistles on as features and the iPhone will still outsell it.

Because of Apples App Store and Support. It gives developers more money and takes very little. This is one of the reasons why their devices are more expensive. They make money off Hardware, not software.
Google doesn't. It takes more from developers, which is why some won't touch Android with a barge pole.

UPDATING IS ONLY A BONUS!


The LG mobile division managed to ship 14 million smartphones, which is a 9 percent increase over the previous quarter. The revenue from the mobile communications department is also up by 5 percent on a quarter basis adding up to 2.5 trillion Korean won ($2.26 billion).
One of the main reasons for the growth are the company's newly introduced LTE droids, which sell particularly well in Korea, Japan and the US. The L-series of phones have also contributed to the positive results.
For the Q4 2012, the company says that it has set the groundwork to improve sales thanks to the launch of the Optimus G and Optimus Vu 2 in Korea. It also acknowledges that R&D and marketing expenses have increased, but it's still turning up profits thanks to "improved product mix" and "cost structure".
