Re: Jelly Bean no where in sight?!
I think you missed MY point, which is that larger updates WILL take longer to develop than these little updates. The greater the number of overall combinations of components are available for a given platform, the more difficult it will be to provide updates. Google can do the updates for Nexus devices because there are so few of them, compared to all the different combinations of displays, processors, GPUs, accelerometers, and so on that are available.
The only advantage that Apple has is that they directly release updates, but if iOS were supported on as many different devices as Android is, then you would see "only Apple branded devices get updates on the OFFICIAL iOS update schedule". AT&T and Verizon are clearly incompetent, so should NOT be allowed to block updates, but Apple has been against allowing MacOS on ANY device due to not wanting to support all the different combinations of components in the computer space, and the same goes for tablet/phones as well. They don't WANT to be concerned with device drivers and testing, plus support for some weird combination of components that companies decide to use in their devices.
