or is this a fantasy? (based on VZW's past actions on updating Android smartphones)

VZW is slow, but usually update at least once. For example, if you phone has GB, then you get ICS.
If you phone has ICS, then you get JB. However, if you phone started with GB, you shouldn't expect
JB, ever. In the case of the VZW Galaxy S3, then the recent ICS to JB update is the last "major"
one and no update to KLP. (sounds crazy? but that's what a Verzion corporate store manager told
me)

Depends on your definition of "a few" - if it's 6, yeah there's a chance though if you're expecting 3, then probably not.

Still some issues with key lime pie, as noted in the forums. As long as they exist, most carriers will hold off on updating.

The S3 just received 4.1 OTA, it will likely be at least 4-6 months before they release 4.2. The odds of Verizon releasing key lime pie for the S3 are slim (imo), but who really knows.

Unless you have a Nexus device, you can't count on any OEM or carrier.

I think that Verizon and the other carriers are more interested in selling you a new phone with the newest software and drag their feet on major software upgrades for older phones when there is already a new model of phone out or in development. Just ask a Droid Bionic owner.

The only thing you can count on VZW to do is increase their bottom line. Anything else is coincidental.

3-6 months AFTER Samsung creates it. That is IF Samsung creates it.

So Google releases update to android. 3-6 months later Samsung gets around to releasing something with touchwiz and carrier bloat on it. 3-6 months after that, Verizon will release it to you...

You get the picture
