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.

I think a Key Lime Pie release would be welcomed in one of two ways..

Another big performance upgrade with a short list of new features. and/OR an upgrade that somehow swallowed Chrome OS. Turning Android into an OS that's running on phone/tablet/TV/PC. The latter would be mostly transparent for devices other than Chromebooks.

Note: I haven't really played around with ChromeOS, other than just booting it up and initial 5 minutes of use.
