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.

Would this be so you can't avoid going through the google spy -- errr gate keeper and bypass their ability to track your every breath?
I sometime can't help getting the feeling that any networking capabilities apart from http are intentionally kept out of android for this reason. Maybe I'm being paranoid?

The linux kernel has native built in ability to connect to any number of network protocols (cifs, nfs) yet they're all broken why?

Why does everything need to go through google and its spy ridden crap network? Hell I can't even retrieve weather updates without revealing my location, why is that?

Anyhoo, the article is right. We don't need another android version. We don't even need the one we've got!
