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.

Hmm, a friend of mine has told me everyone he knows that has updated to ICS has problems. While that may have been an exaggeration, there do seem to be real issues with ICS, or at least with the stuff OEMs are putting out. I'm sticking with CM7 on my Defy, even though CM9 is available. CM7 does what I want and works without issues, so why mess with it.

My Nexus S has random restarts after upgraded to ICS, as well as dramatically reduced battery life. This is the official update, no custom ROM.

My Acer Iconia Tab A500 has some issues related to ICS, like e.g. GMail application keeps on crashing, but then again, I am using a custom ROM and the issues are probably related to that. On the other hand, my Samsung Galaxy Note is rock-solid, I haven't had any issues whatsoever and what's more the ICS-update fixed several really bad issues I had.

For lots of TF101 users, ICS was without problems, still for some unlucky ones, myself included, it's been nothing but pain. There are countless hardware revisions of the same product, apparently each with its own quirks. There are hundreds and hundreds of pages on XDA with reports about Transformer problems. No one, not even Asus managed to track all the problems. Here's the official thread: http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=1556914 (just 300 pages :p)

I think this will conclude my Android adventure. I've paid close to 500 euros for this piece of crap. My advice ... just get a Windows/Linux laptop.

Amen.

I have a netbook. My next portable-device-that-isn't-a-phone will be... a netbook. Running a full-fledged Linux distro, the same one as on my desktop, with the same full-fledged applications and everything.

Android is ok on the phone. On everything else, I want a full OS.
