Google Forget patent trolling - Android's biggest weakness, and most daunting obstacle to overcome, is its complete and utter lack of updates. Motorola has detailed its upgrade plans for Ice Cream Sandwich - and it ain't good. If the company Google just bought can't even update its phones properly, what can we expect from the rest?

you can't run what? Chrome and a handful of other apps?


I've run into a few apps I wanted to try on the Touchpad running Gingerbread and couldn't because they required Honeycomb (which was not widely available) or higher...

For example, this one: https://market.android.com/details?id=com.subhog.antipaper.notes

But hey, go ahead and tell me I'm just a geek, and my opinion doesn't matter, I'm used to it.

OK my bad, I was talking about phone apps. Real tablet apps are all not going work, because they require Android 3 or higher.

On the other hand Google said that they do not support Gingerbread on tablets...

I've always been curious - where does one draw the line between phone and tablet?

I ask because there are tons of Gingerbread-compatible apps that run at tablet resolutions, and look great doing so.

Besides, it's their own fault for not releasing Honeycomb sources...
