i'm getting tired of fragmentation of android and waiting forever for an update to get my phone working right. i am considering going back to iphone for the next upgrade
Technically the same thing happened with 2.0 to 2.1 to 2.2. 2.0 came out in October 09, then 2.1 in January 10 and 2.2 was May 2010. A lot of phones skipped ever getting 2.0 and jumped right to 2.1. The same thing could happen with 4.0 and 4.1. Also keep in mind that 4.0 was technically out in mid October which was 8 months ago.
If you really think about it though, it could be a lot worse. You could have just bought the top of the line Windows Mobile phone that came out 2 months ago. Then you could have just discover that it will never be capable of running the next software version. I'll take a little fragmentation over phones more or less reaching EOL in 2 months.
