Sony against Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich

The marvel of the Android world as of right now is Android 4.0; users and critics alike love it because of it’s elegant design, fluidity, and speed.  On the other hand, there is one company that does not seem to be convinced.


On the Sony developer blog [HERE] there is a list of reasons outlined explaining why users would not want to upgrade to the latest version of Google’s mobile operating system.  Sony even tried to point the finger and the browser stating that it is “quite intensive”.  Read entire story [HERE].  Is it the fault of Google that Ice Cream Sandwich is not performing well or is it the fault of manufacturers such as Sony that consistently adds widgets, themes, apps, and more to the experience that eventually cause more harm than good?

Bottom line:  It is remarkable how manufacturers try to “fix” and “mold” Android for their newly released devices but never put forth that same effort when an update is released to make sure that it works just the same.  This really makes one wonder….is it really Google’s fault that Android fragmentation exists?
