Yes, but this is a byproduct of being "open" to the extent that each vendor can customize Android with enough proprietary bells and whistles that changing desserts is a non-trivial enterprise.

As great as open source is and as much as people love Android-including me-this is something that will have to be addressed head on going forward. If that doesn't happen then the enterprise won't let Android on a grand scale. As BYOD goes forward and more and more users are being allowed to integrate personal and business devices, this will matter. . .

Which is not Google's fault, but the tardiness of the hardware vendors.

In the end it is all a flavor of *nix and that includes iOS as well. I wonder if Microsoft still considers it a cancer.

Page can't face the fact that Ice Cream is melting. Hopefully the Jelly Beans will benefit because they don't need refrigeration. Right now I know glaciers that move faster than the Android upgrade.
