That's the best part about choice. If you don't like something Google is doing then the iPhone might be the right decision for you. I have had no problems with my phone and if I want more options you can root and ROM your phone to (most likely) get the latest OS on your phone.
The thing is Google is just using code names for its release, but Apple does the same thing with their numbers. iOS 5.0 was released on October 12th, 2011 and iOS 5.1 was released on March 7th 2012. ICS (4.0) was released on October 19th 2011 and we won't see 4.1 until later this year which could actually equate to a longer time between releases than Apple.
Android has always done x.1 releases without major chances EXCEPT 2.3 (Gingerbread) which added & changed a lot of things in the OS. I highly doubt we see many changes between 4.0 and 4.1, but what we do see will definitely be an improvement over ICS and I have no problems with it at all so I would love to see what they have planned.
Just some food for thought.
