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?

Carriers and sales volume

There's almost certainly some carrier and/or volume stuff involved.

I have the Electrify which is the same as the Photon 4G but without WiMAX. The Photon 4G is in Development, scheduled for Q3, but the Electrify is "In Evaluation & Planning. Further details to follow."

The main difference here seems to be the carriers. And I'm sure the Electrify has fewer handsets sold.

That said, my phone is working fine and I wasn't promised anything with my purchase. But it will be really annoying if it gets stuck on Gingerbread while its sister phone gets ICS.
