Google does an excellent job with their updates and managing their own stuff, maybe even better than Apple. That would be the Nexus line of devices. Which is completely managed by Google. Not a manufacturer or a carrier.

So you'll never compare iOS to Android, unless you compare the iPhone 4 to the Galaxy Nexus. If you compare the iPhone to your Skyrocket you're comparing AT&T/Samsung's service to Apple's service.
I know. Its just frustrating getting late updates. I love android would never use anything else. I just wish it was more "consistent"

My Galaxy Nexus comes in today. Today I will have 4.0.4. The day 4.0.5 comes out I'll have it. The SR has slightly better hardware, but the hastle of AT&T crapware and AT&T/Samsung OS delivery times. Worth it.

TY. I'll be looking for you on the Nexus forums. When work slows down I'm going to do some themes and mods. Seems every time I get ramped up to do one I get confronted with a large project at work. I'm hoping I have some down time before this ~4500 hour project hits.
