But, but…it’s called choice….right?

Vlad Savov over at The Verge:

We’re now four and a half months removed from the launch of ICS and Asus, for one, has been able to turn the stock software into a decent, if imperfect, Ice Cream Sandwich ROM for its Transformer Prime tablet.

If Google is in charge of the Android project, it should accept responsibility for all of it, because that’s how the rest of the world perceives it. And if it’s not, it should come clean by clearly defining which devices will and won’t benefit from its “express new OS” service.

I can’t believe how long it takes them (both Google, and their manufacturers) to make ICS available on new phones. Almost all Android phones are still being sold, as new, with an OS that’s more than a year old.
