Google Through the Google Play Store, the next version of Android has been confirmed: Android 4.1, Jelly Bean. I'm hoping for just a single new feature: something to address the update mess. I don't care how, as long as they do something.

My educated guess is, if the OEM has done the required homework (hw + custom sw adaptation) for ICS, jumping to Jelly Bean will be a breeze.

Maybe some OEM's have decided to skip ICS altogether in anticipation of Jelly Bean? Judging by how much ICS sucks (at least on my Iconia A500), that would make sense.

Sounds more likely to be an OEM customization problem, it's solid as a rock on my Galaxy Nexus.

Same here - and I'm on CM9 on my SII which is supposedly alpha.

Asus Transformer user here. ICS made my tablet a piece of garbage. I have random restarts and sleep of death all the time, plus lots of flickering in some apps. It's an aknowledged issue and Asus is cranking updates every month to solve the issue. Till now, no luck.

More likely the OEMs didn't feel like putting in the time and effort to get 4.0 ready for their devices.

Andorid 4.0 on my wife's recently purchased Galaxy Nexus is very nice.
