Google Forget patent trolling - Android's biggest weakness, and most daunting obstacle to overcome, is its complete and utter lack of updates. Motorola has detailed its upgrade plans for Ice Cream Sandwich - and it ain't good. If the company Google just bought can't even update its phones properly, what can we expect from the rest?

That is the problem with throw-over-the-wall open source with added dependencies to closed source (drivers, vendor value-subtractions)
I really hope the Lima project finishes its Mali GPU drivers soon. My next phone will be all ARM (as in with Mali GPU) and hopefully that will make updating and running other FOSS systems (Mer, Tizen) fairly easy (Linux 1.0 easy)
