    Even with the minor and major bugs in the 4.1.1 release, I would rather wait for an update to 4.2. Hopefully that will be in a month or so.. We shall see. Come on HTC and Sprint.

    I heard that it was up to Sprint to decide when they will release the download... Being that 4.2 has already been launched and several brands already have it... Notably the newer Nexus models... But I also read on sprints forum's that we would not get 4.2

    If I had to guess I'd say we will. I have no idea on timing though. As for Key Lime Pie I'm not sure whether we'll see that officially.

    Pretty much this. Sprint takes it's time deciding whether/when to release updates. Remember how some of us had already downloaded the 4.1 update, and sprint techs didn't know it?

    No way will it be in a month. No way. 4.1 was released in july, we got it in december. 4.2 was released in the last three months. The earliest I would guess would be late feb/ early march.

    Notably the newer nexus models.....And ONLY the newer GSM nexus models. There are no carrier specific 4.2.1 updates, and no non-nexus device 4.2.1 updates. NO device other than a GSM nexus has 4.2.1. No manufacturer has released it for any devices yet. Most phones launched at CES run 4.1 as it is. The roleout for any device will take time, and so far no one has done it (unless you count ROM devs)

    I would imagine I'd have the next EVO before another update is available for our phones. I'd be surprised to see it before the next EVO comes out.

    It wouldn't surprise me. That said, there are ROMs available

    Phil put out a pretty good reason to why people on Jellybean probably wont get 4.2. Besides lockscreen widget (which are useless) and the new 360 camera mode (which is pretty useless. Trust e, I've used it)that update will do nothing. It was all UI tweaks that skinned android owners wouldnt get. maybe eventually but it'll be very incremental.

    Sprint nexus getting jb 4.2

    Photosphere sounds neat. Would rather see a 4.1.2 patch first though.

    Like I said l, people with skinned versions of android (sense, touch wiz) don't have much of a reason to wait for android 4.2. The Sprint Nexus isn't skinned son it has a reason to get it.

    Personally there isn't anything in 4.2 I care about. As far as photosphere if there isn't already one, I'm sure an app will be developed to do the same thing without pining for HTC to update us. They've given us our JB and Sense+, given us our Project Butter and Google Now.....they just have to worry about fixing issues they've caused IMO.
