To anybody who believes that upgrades are not being made available for older devices because of performance issues know there is some mixed truth in that belief. Yes your G1 won't be able to handle ICS but many devices that won't be getting it can. Most manufacturers aren't as downright screw-you-for-profit happy as Apple but all of them are at least a little bit it's how they stay in business. Much like the iPhone 4 not getting Siri because of alleged performance issues some Android users won't get ICS. There aren't really performance issues but HTC/Motorola/Samsung or whoever want you to buy a new phone already. If you don't believe this I'd like to see a good argument against it, because mos every manufacturer wants you to buy their latest and greatest and has tactics to nudge customers into doing so.
Agreed. Companies think they could get away with outdated software and lack of updates, but the Android community can see through this crap and port newer versions because they can. This is a huge benefit of rooting with Android devices - where updates not 'meant' to be on your phone can be made possible thanks to a talented dev team.

And BTW, the Galaxy Nexus' PenTile display is much better than what Motorola's phones are using. You won't even notice the pixelation especially at that resolution of 720p. So don't fret.

Root it and put Cyanogenmod or MIUI on it. My girlfriend absolutely hated how her EVO used to be ever since I put MIUI on it.

Thanks to many talented dev teams and a vastly more open OS where far fewer exploits, hacks, and workarounds need be utilized to achieve such ends!

Jailbreaking, as far as the processes that make it happen are concerned, is painful compared to rooting and swapping ROMs etc. It may be about as easy for the end user to achieve a root or jailbreak - but holy heck what the dev teams must go through to make jailbreaking possible (vs rooting) is ridiculous. Take it from someone with an iPhone 4, and DX 2 who has dabbled in both ends of the spectrum on the development level.

Cool! I don't have to wait that long since MIUI promised to have ICS in a month's time of release! Here's to hoping CM7 finally get the 3VO working 100% so I can get 4G and ICS goodness on my 3VO.
post #27 of 31
haha my old HTC Incredible (not really that old) should have a nice little ROM released for it sporting ICS. Honestly, I really want a 4g device, now that my area is thoroughly saturated, and 720p screen... I'll wait until beginning of next year though

Apple has it right. 2 Major updates for each iPhone. Android considering the strong Hardware should be able to do so also. For example something like Galaxy S got 2.2, 2.3 and could easily handle 4.0.

I can understand the desire not getting it, but the desire s BETTER get it, cause it can easily handle it. I would just flash it but I'll only do that when my warrenty is almost up or there are problem free methods of s-on and unrooting. either way, I'll be happy with gingerbread for at least 6months.

guys even if you don't get it, cyanogenmod means you CAN get it.
