It’s been nearly four months since the Samsung Galaxy Nexus arrived, bearing the latest version of Google’s mobile OS, known to most of us as Android 4.0 or Ice Cream Sandwich. In this span of time, only a handful of smartphones and tablets have been blessed with an upgrade to this iteration. Why? One word: differentiation. The majority of mobile manufacturers are determined to come up with their own brands and tweak the open-source OS to their whimsy as a means of standing out from the rest of the crowd. But doing so involves several months of designing, programming and testing — for each individual device. Sadly, this means we’re left waiting impatiently for most outfits to come out with their own customized skin.
