- Android 4 code was released 2011-10-19 and is found on retail shelves within weeks
- “7” beta released 2008-12-27 and “7” was released to manufacturers 2009-7-22 and arrived in public on 2009-10-22, ten months after the beta
I think by the time “8” will be released, it will already be obsolete. Likely Android will release a couple more times between now and then. M$ is sunk up to its axles in bloat while the world scampers along on small cheap computers.
“8” Roll-out of Beta Scheduled for March 2012
