Congratulations iphone 4 users,.. Apple is about to shove so much bloat into their new OS and then force you to install it, so that your 4 becomes a paper weight.

Thanks :) At least the manufacturer is giving them an update for a 3 year old device...

You can install jelly bean on a nexus one if you want, and it works great. Google makes their updates available, but not mandatory. Apple forces your hardware to update weather you like it or not, even if it makes your phone unusable.

Bad mouth Android fragmentation all you want, but it has its upside. At least android (and the handset manufacturers) still maintain support for older devices and OS's so you can continue to use the device you purchased.

Reading all the threads of people permanently placing their iphones into airplane mode so they can at least use it as an ipod touch (ios 4 release) is sad.

So let me get this straight... Apple's product is "shipping" thanks to Apple? That's some really impressive logic, Jane. You should be a writer some day, when you're all grown up.

You've got to be kidding me! :D

Everyone who owns a Android handset deserves an update without having to root!

You're an apologist for the fragmentation that causes 44% of Android users to run Android 3.2 Gingerbread - http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Android_(operating_system) A version of Android that has security holes and bugs? Even when older devices like your Nexus One can handle all the Jelly Bean goodness?

Google should be following the software update standards that Microsoft or Linux (pick a version) use. Their OS updates happen regardless of hardware. They don't throw the yoke of updates on Dell... There are thousands of versions of hardware running Linux and Windows, Old computers to new, far more than all the Android handsets so there is no excuse for this.

I think you mean Android 2.3, old chap :p

What are you talking about, security holes and bugs? As if that's any different to any OS on any platform, ever?

Google can't adopt the software models of desktop operating systems because it's impractical. If you don't understand why (and it appears you don't) then this and the issue of fragmentation is probably not a conversation worth having until you understand a little more.

The next time you post something that demonstrates factual knowledge of the android ecosystem will be the first. Its amazing the way your cherry pick facts and add fiction in an attempt to slam Google over Android releases. Google deserves slamming for many things but their releases of Android arent it.

1) Your MS-Dell/pc analogy doesnt have any value (aside from the fact that you wrote it). Dell doesnt add customizations to the OS of functionality the user cant remove, which mandate a customization of the OS patch for installation. Droid phone carriers do.

2) Dell users can connect to MS to download patches and fixes. Droid users cant get updates from Google.

3) Users of pcs can update at any time. Droid phone users cant, without hacking the OS.

Go back under your bridge, Apple-Troll.

Good to know that you stay up to date on tech news. This is a follow up to the reports of iOS 7 being delayed due to so many feature modifications and UI changes. To remediate the demand on their iOS developers, they pulled the osX team in to help.

If you bothered clicking the "more about" link its the second article in the list.

Also, way to be a dick. /rude

That's interesting that you mention that.

Currently, a 16GB iPhone shows 13GB available to the user.
Currently, a 16GB Samsung Galaxy S4 shows 8.8GB available to the user.

Bloat, indeed!
