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.

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.

I'm still thinking about that ... I've also got a Samsung Galaxy S and the whole update fiasco was just awful. Not to mention the crap that is Touchwiz and the uninstallable applications, the phone comes with. Custom ROMs are not much better ... one didn't have bluetooth, CM7 was going through my battery like a fat kid goes through candy, back to stock now, but data doesn't work and I'm too tired to install a new ROM. You can only read so many 500 page threads on XDA.

I think I'll go with a Windows Phone 8 device next year.
