So will this make ICS the most short lived Android yet by both time and the fewest number of devices running it?

Not by a long shot.

Android 2.0 to 2.1 (both codenamed Eclair) is the shortest, I'd think. First, only the OG DROID shipped with 2.0 in November. The next January, Google announced Android 2.1 alongside the Nexus One.

This... while both named eclair, huge differences between the 2.

This is way too quick. Look how long it took Verizon just to put out 4.0.4. Not to mention ICS is just on 7% of devices. I think google is rushing because IOS5 is around the corner but I'd rather them take there time and release it in the fall than rush and have issues. Make sure its something innovative in Jellybean also. You know something Apple will want to copy next year with IOS6

Ahh ok I got in the Android game at 2.2 making me think Gingerbread(2.3) with its 2+ years of run time as an oddity :p.

It's probably not a major update, so hopefully the new OS doesn't break too many apps. I'm all for frequent updates personally.

1. There's been no official talk or mention of Jellybean, so anyone saying that it's "too quick" has to step back and realize you don't even have a date to claim that with, let alone ANY other information about what is upgraded/improved in 4.1. Chillax for Christ's sake.. At least wait til you have credible information before throwing a pointless fit about it.
2. It's LOL silly to actually see anyone upset about google actively working to improve and advance android. If you want an OS that doesn't get improved I hear apple has something that might fit you.
3. So is this the first official unofficial "wherez my 4.1 update?!?" thread? Lol :)

No think this is just a thread of "Wow is it a glitch or a slip of the typo?" and to be honest you seem to be the only one freaking out. I am just saying...

It's NOT going to be called Jelly Bean. Android 2.0 and 2.1 were both Eclair, 3.0 and 3.2 were both Honeycomb, and 4.0 and 4.1 will both be ICS. It makes no sense for Google to introduce Jelly Bean so early. I'm willing to bet money. You guys are just hoping it's Jelly Bean.

Then why did 2.2 and 2.3 get their own names? The version number means very little, and since Google's own website had "Android 4.1 Jell..." I'm going to have to disagree with you.

My point is that they next version of Android doesn't have to be a new name. And I think it's the opposite. The version name means very little.

It doesn't matter what they call 4.1, with Verizon on the job, my CDMA Nexus will get it about the time Google releases "Kandykorn"...

Any time Google announces a new version of Android, it's got its own name. Google had a special event for Android 2.2, 2.3, 3.0, and 4.0. Froyo, Gingerbread, Honeycomb, and ICS. 2.1, 3.1, and 3.2 weren't major updates and were rolled out without an announcement. Since Google is going to be announcing the new version next week, it'll be a pretty major update and will have it's own sweet treat name.

Any chance it would be called Jello?

:D

Dang, you stole my joke! I was thinking earlier today when I first heard about this "Jell..." it would be pretty funny that the rumours were pushing "Jelly Bean" almost as if it was fact... and then Google goes and names it something else!

No matter, I don't care what its called, or what the features are... I'm just curious to see what its got. I must admit I'm pretty excited, considering I only jumped into Android in April of this year :)
