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?

Exactly. The vendors are part of the problem, but the main problem lies with Google. They want all these partners, but they refuse to give them access to the code until they release their own phone with the final version.

This is also bad for developers, since if Google released beta versions, they would be able to test and prepare their apps for the final release rather than having to go out and buy a new phone when it becomes available just to test their apps on the newest version.
