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 disagree. It's not Google's fault the carriers are f*cking up every single time they know a new release is pending. What do you want them to do? Stop innovating? When the time is right, Google will realize it won't need to release so many updates because the platform will be mature (and they will slow down with the releases). But so far, this is not the case, so frequent update are welcome. :-)
