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.

They should sort out issues with their Play Store before even thinking about the new version.

1. Cleanup. Why would anyone want 642 fart apps?
2. Better vetting; for security and device compatibility.
3. Improve content (movie, music, mag) for non-US users.
4. Introduce some sort of gift card system.
5. Better overall interface, speed and search.
