PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless "Conventional wisdom suggests that, just like Gingerbread in 2010 and ICS in 2011, the next version of Android could make an appearance sometime in the fourth quarter of 2012. But the current state of the Android ecosystem indicates that this might not be the best course of action for Google, its OEMs or their customers. In this article, we'll take a brief look at why Google should stick with Android 4.1 until 2013, and push Android forward with hardware, not software later in the year." Fully agreed. Give the ecosystem some time to catch its breath. I mean, it's not as if the competition has anything groundbreaking up its sleeve - iOS and Android are so close these days.

Give me Cyanogenmod or die!

I think Cyanogenmod has so many cool enhancements that everybody should have. I don't know why doesn't everybody want fine grained permission management?
Why should I allow games to download and display ads? Why should I give them my location? etc
That are things the uninformed can live with, I don't want to.With CM I can say: No Rovio, you have earned enough, I need my bandwidth and my battery for myself. That maybe elitist, but I just don't care. Those are the perks you get from using an open system.

And CM offers so much more. There is something for everybody.
