PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless "Conventional wisdom suggests that, just like Gingerbread in 2010 and ICS in 2011, the next version of Android could make an appearance sometime in the fourth quarter of 2012. But the current state of the Android ecosystem indicates that this might not be the best course of action for Google, its OEMs or their customers. In this article, we'll take a brief look at why Google should stick with Android 4.1 until 2013, and push Android forward with hardware, not software later in the year." Fully agreed. Give the ecosystem some time to catch its breath. I mean, it's not as if the competition has anything groundbreaking up its sleeve - iOS and Android are so close these days.

That being said, what do I want from Google? If the Nexus is the only REAL Android phone I have to choose from, I wish Google would release a couple more high-end phones. Even when it came out, the Nexus wasn't exactly cutting-edge, and the camera is sub-par at best. And the radio (at least on the Verizon version) absolutely sucks ass.
It is hard for Google to compete with its own OEM. The Nexus is a balancing act, they need to stimulate the OEM without eating into their revenue.

And the high-end tier is where most of the revenue comes from.
