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?

I've got a Motorola Atrix phone. It's a brilliant concept, a little bit crippled/ahead of it's time. The phone needs 2-4gb of ram not the 1gb they shipped it with. When it boots into laptop mode it doesn't have enough ram to run more than about 3 tabs in firefox. This is mostly because the phone is using the bulk of the ram for phone functions at the same time. Updates to the firmware are definately necessary. These devices are no longer phones. When you put 48gb of storage into a phone and make it turn into a laptop it better damn well keep being updated/upgraded. These devices are going to start going toe to toe with laptops over the next 3-5 years. If the rumors are true and there's a quad core 2gb atrix 3 later this year I'll definately be upgrading to it.
