Very often at least you could upgrade these devices manually as I understand.

Also my Motorola Xoom which was one of the first ICS tablets, got the upgrade to 4.1 just fine. We'll see if it continues, but at least they are not missing core features like the Windows Phone devices.

*For manufactures to choose not to upgrade is one thing, but for Microsoft to come out and say you cannot upgrade your devices is my issue

Missing core features is indeed a central problem. Also apps at Android work across versions and its up to the developer to define the minimum version supported and all newer Android versions are supported, always.
