Some have been updated, others will soon, some will not, but that's still infinitely better than 0.

The major reason many Android devices are stranded on 2.3 is that they have too small of a partition for the OS. Updating that would mean wiping the device, which they can't practically do. This is why Google went to a single partition for Nexus devices starting with the Galaxy Nexus.

4.0 to 4.1 updates have been faster coming, but still slowed by carriers and manufacturers. The point is late is better then never.
