Google Can't Even Get Its Own Nexus Phones Updated On Time

Google released its latest Android operating system, Ice Cream Sandwich, in November

That’s more than five months ago.

Since then, only a tiny fraction of Android smartphones and tablets have received the upgrade.

Everyone else has been stuck waiting for the Ice Cream Sandwich update, if they’re even going to get it at all. That includes those who own one of Google’s flagship Android phones, the Nexus S 4G. Android and Me found the announcement.

Sprint finally announced that it will start rolling out the Ice Cream Sandwich update to Nexus S 4G customers over the next few weeks. 

That’s quite a wait.

It begs the question, if Google can’t even get its own flagship Nexus phones updated on time, what are those who own Android phones from other manufacturers supposed to expect?
