The Best (and Worst) Manufacturers for Actually Getting Android Updates

The Best (and Worst) Manufacturers for Actually Getting Android UpdatesMost of us are still waiting for Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich on our phones, nearly five months after the update was announced. Weblog Computerworld summarizes which manufacturers are following through on their promises, and which ones aren't.

Computerworld discussed this subject once before, back when Andorid 2.2 "Froyo" came out, but things have changed a little bit since then. Computerworld's current "report card" looks at tons of Android manufacturers and grades them on when they promised their Ice Cream Sandwich updates, and how well they're following through on those promises. Surprisingly, many tablet manufacturers like Acer, Archos, and Asus did a great job of updating quickly, while the handset manufacturers like HTC, Samsung, and Motorola are reneging on promises or aiming for updates in the latter half of the year (with Motorola being the worst and HTC being the best-but-still-not-good-enough winner). Hit the link for the full rundown.
