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?

ICS was probably announced and released too early. Google felt pressure to release because the iPhone 4s was releasing and the Christmas buying season was coming up. Although only one phone would have ICS during the Christmas season, it being released led consumers to assume the phones being bought would quickly be updated.

ICS is already on release 4.04 and some significant changes have occurred, at least under the hood.

Part of the delay on phone vendors part was probably them waiting for the platform to stabilize before investing in porting it to their devices.
