    It appears as though 4.2 is still being called jellybean. At least with the naming scheme Google uses for their builds.

    I imagine if it was close to release they'd have it named already.

    If the rumors are true, I hope we don't see key lime pie till next year. When things move this fast you can go out of date in no time

    For example, sprint 3d users didn't get ics until jellybean was released...unless they were rooted, then they got it when our phone was released. Which ones worse??

    The add-ons would purportedly work courtesy of an installation app on Nexus certified devices. If you wanted the oem overlay, you'd likely pay for it and then get their full package to replace your stock package.

    And yes, just as Eclair was 2.0 and 2.1, JellyBean is 4.1 and 4.2.

    Android phones are usually only good for one update. The Evo 3D shipped with 2.3 and got updated to 4.0 so it is highly unlikely we will see Android 4.1 and even if we do get lucky enough to get Jelly Bean anything newer than that is out of the question. Such is the unfortunate reality of Android phones. If you want the latest and greatest you have to upgrade to a new phone every couple years.

    I wasn't talking hardware, I meant software. But yeah, make that every year if you want to stay bleeding edge. I can make a phone last 2 years (because I always buy high end at the time). Ex: Evo V 4G is top of the line on Virgin Mobile right now. It should last me through 2013. ICS and dual core with 1GB RAM is good enough for the time being. Then a nice quad core key lime pie phone (or whatever OS is out then) will be my next purchase.

    If you want the latest and greatest software you want a nexus device. Unfortunately, I dont think any prepaids carry it. Maybe that'll change with this year's nexus devices

    Supposedly the next Nexus will be multi sourced so here's to hoping that maybe one will land on Virgin's network.

    I think you can get a nexus with Walmarts smart talk if you get a sim card


    I don't happen to get that service in my area though. :(
