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?

If Motorola can't ship updates.. heck, it's far worse then that. If Google Motorola can't use Google's stock Android distribution (aks, actual Android) instead of one of the knockoff child forks these vendors keep feeling the need to ship and unsupport.. WTF? The real value in Google having it's own hardware manufacturing arm is using Google Android instead of shipping a pre-molested version.

This just further comfirms my opinion; if it's not a Nexus device, it's not Android inside. When I booted it up for the first time it popped up a license warning "this device will recieve updates directly from Google.. agree?" - Heck yes I agree. I baught this specific OS implementation because it was going to get updates directly from Google.
