Google is already with Android in version 4.1 "Jelly Bean", the manufacturers only deliver updates to Ice Cream Sandwich bit by bit - the improvements, e.g. by "Project Butter", do not reach the customers of course. Because the manufacturers are hesitating with the updates, it is loud Heise Online In addition, there is no smartphone with a current Android available in Germany: the supported Galaxy Nexus and Nexus S are only available as remaining stock, the Google Tablet Nexus 7 is not yet available.
It shows: even with Android 4.x, Google has not managed to make the manufacturers faster with the updates. This is a real pity, because Android offers a lot of potential in the current version and runs much smoother than user view due to the latest adjustments by Google. It remains the task of the manufacturers to pass on the possibilities that Google offers with Android to the customers.
