PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless This is fun. The number one iOS carrier duking it out with the company behind the world's most popular smartphone operating system. Last month, Google's lead for the Android Open Source Project, Jean-Baptiste Queru, more or less blamed carriers (see comments) for Android's upgrade woes. Yesterday, AT&T's CEO Randall Stephenson retaliated, blaming Google for the delays. And yes, Google already responded to that, too.

"So, why do European market or "unlocked" devices suffer long update cycles, too, if the (US) carriers are to blame?

The international SII got ICS way before the US variants (do those even have ICS?).

The official (never mind the leaks) ICS update was rolled out to the GS2 in the middle of April. Less than a month ago, bit I digress. So, the GS2 is on ICS, but what other phones -- besides the Nexus-line -- are?

All I have seen are statements of intent, but no actions yet.

EDIT: crappy quote formating
