Really? I just got the ICS update like 2-3 months ago for the Xoom.
Yeah that's because the phone manufac was just able to make ics stable enough to run on it android not the os that everyone here thinks it is but has the bells and whistle to keep some satisfied. Having said that they don't force limitations like apple so their it is a good thing.

The Xoom was a stock device made by Moto. So it makes sense why it would be upgraded.

You don't think ICS is iOS-esque smoothness breh?



Classic.
It's ALMOST as smooth... but something about lame a.ss iOS makes it buttery smoother than ICS.

Maybe the next Droid phone. HTC has pretty much stated that they are not releasing any more touch and type phones. Samsung does not seem to be releasing any as well. Unfortunately that market is becoming extinct in Android phones.


The HTC Status was pretty decent but the screen was just a tad bit small. Well I do like the droid pro but I don't think they have a GSM version since I'm with at&t. I guess I just will have to cop the Nokia E6 and the wait for blackberry for their 10OS cause they said they'll have plenty of touch and type phones.

I dont know why u guys are getting excited alot of phones STILL havent even got ice cream sandwich so its gonna be another 2 years for this to make its runs to the phones if the phones get it at all.

this is a minor update just like the ios6 which makes things all even for Windows Phone 8 which EASILY has the best upgrade for the fall. ios6 and android LOST

The development community will have this out long before 2 years. My OG Evo had ICS 2-3 months after the source code was released. The average phone user wont get Jellybean for a short period, but they are usually the ones who know nothing about these updates. A lot of android users I know still dont know what ICS is and are still on 2.2. let alone 2.3

I'm sure this'll be an update similar to the 2.2--->2.3 update. It'll add some new features, tweaks to make it smoother, update to apps etc. There wont be any drastic changes compared to 2.3-->4.0.

Not to mention that since this is an incremental update and not a complete overhaul like ICS was, it will be easier for manufacturers to implement the update. ICS has taken longer than others because it was a huge overhaul of Android OS. It even took a while for the open source community to make ROMs and they are usually very fast. Jelly Bean will be a lot easier to update.

As for the two year remark made, ICS has not even been out a year and most of the major phones have the update. The rest of the compatible phones will have the update before a year of the release of ICS. ICS was released in October of last year and the first phone with ICS (Galaxy Nexus) was released in November. It has been eight months, no where near two years. The older phones will not get ICS period. That percentage that keeps being mentioned is stupid. ICS will not run on low end phones with less than 512MB of RAM. Those phones will never get ICS. All compatible phones will have ICS before a year's time of the release.
