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?

When you buy a PC with Windows 7 do you expect to get a free/automatic upgrade to Windows 8? Geeks don't like it, but the average Android user doesn't give a fuck.

People with a technical bent are more likely to complain about the problem, but the word does leak out of geekland and out to normal people. They then get the feeling that they've bought and abandoned device. I've had non-technical people ask me for a recommendation and then turn around and ask me to explain what that "upgrade thing with Android" is.
