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.

It's pretty much common knowledge by now that if you care anything about staying on the bleeding edge on Android, then you buy a Nexus phone

I doubt it's common knowledge ...and anyway, not strictly true - Nexus phones also had some hiccups with updates. It's probably best to get one of the more popular Cyanogenmod target devices.
