Re: Android OEMs are copying Apple in all the wrong ways
Weird. My midrange Xperia P was updated twice, first to ICS and then to Jelly Bean. There was some Sony software on it but it wasn't all rubbish, and they didn't mess the stock Android around very much (compae to Samsung).
One can take 'somthings' word for it, or one can check XDA to get an idea of how vendors release updates.
