This is just to vent anger. This is my second phone on Android and the second time he was without the normal support.

UPD: I suggest everyone write to the LG, in different countries, and compare the results obtained, the date of release ICS

if we are going to "sit down and relx" we are porbably going to get ICS in 2013

LG has no incentive to give us ICS. We need to make public the way LG treats customers... If we are achieving a public discurs about the update ... LG has an incentive to give us ICS... so that we will shut up

Developing a firmware with official support takes months.
If they are going to do it, they are already doing it...

I agree we should just spam them, make sure they don't forget, otherwise they could end up thinking the device is old and outdated and if they think its sold all its going to they will certaibly abandon it.

So keep bugging them untill it is released.

Android is created by Google, Tegra2 codes are from nVidia, can someone explain for me, what exactly are LG coding? I think they have to do only few small changes... 3 weeks for average IT university student are enought

You know, some people even here at xda take everything for granted. They just ask, beg, and rant, thinking that by doing so they'll get anything done pronto. They don't do stuff themselves, so they don't have any idea what working means. And when they actually get what they want, they give their magical "thanks dude" combo, justifying all the hardwork the developers/oems do. Really, life can't be easier this way.

jura55: not all hardware in the phone comes from nvidia, so they will need to prepare drivers for that too, and optimize the nvidia drivers for working together with these parts.
and they add their own apps and tweaks to Android which all need updating too.

after all that they will need to properly test all this, which can probably take over a month as well.

devs at xda usually just use existing apps removing the need for updating things like custom camera apps, keyboards, and launchers.
and they can skip their testing or use a public alpha/beta test to speed up things a lot.
people also tend to demand less perfection from developers at xda.
