Here's a mildly interesting article:
What I have been missing is that Ice Cream Sandwich (and stock Android in general) is to Google as iOS is to Apple. Google releases one “true Android” device running stock Android every year, just as Apple releases one iPhone running the newest version of iOS every year. Apple and Google are taking the same approach here: one phone, one operating system.
Well said. This is why I'll wait as long as it takes (to a reasonable degree) for the SGN, and why I don't understand the allure of the RAZR or Re-crappy.
