Google The Verge reviewed Android 4.1, Jelly Bean. "Android 4.1 Jelly Bean is one of the best products Google has ever produced. It's fast, fluid, and beautifully designed. It also does a better job of unifying all of Google's disparate services than anything else the company has ever offered. Everything from the Chrome browser, Google+, Maps, Gmail, and most of all Google Search - in the form of Google Now - is tightly integrated into a user experience that outshines even the company's web properties."

People will say that choice is good, and I tend to agree with this, but there needs to be some sort of quality control, like a 'seal of approval' or something. At least give the consumer some sort of assurance that 'this device isn't going to completely suck ass'....

I'm with you. Some of the device offerings, even those from the major brands, have been abysmal. It's one thing to have a custom skin and carrier bloatware, but it's another to use one that can barely run the apps it comes with.

More importantly, this lack of quality control on Google's part gets worse in their own app marketplace. Seriously, a Rick Santorum app? Might as well get the heroin and meth pushers to release something, to complement all the other apps made by criminals.
