Thought this would be a good place for people that either have a android phone or tablet (or android discussion in general), since the Apple thread is starting to get clogged up with other stuff.

With google I/O going on, they have already announced Jellybean 4.1, and the Nexus 7. Here is a review of the Nexus 7 from Engadget

So jealous. I doubt I will even get a ICS update on my phone. I hate being on US Cellular, and their shitty phone selection. At least I already have good 4G coverage in my area so when I get a 4G I will be good to go.

The Galaxy S3 will definitely be my next phone, I can't believe USC is getting it at the same time as the "Big 4"

<3 Android. From what I hear my HTC Inspire 4G should be getting ICS sometime this summer.

Good to hear. I was worried I wouldn't get it.

I installed a new rom on my Optimus V that has ICS, and I love it. So slick and smooth. It will probably be a while until someone comes up with a Jellybean rom for my phone.

Should be getting the HTC One X sometime in the next month. The Nexus Q looks so interesting.

I was thinking about the Galaxy S3 but it seems the reviews are so so on it. Someone convince me.

I want one pretty bad just because it has ICS and it would be my first 4G phone, I just wish it had stock ICS as a option.

I definitely need an upgrade since I'm still rocking the Droid X, but I'm wondering if it would be worth waiting for something in the fall. I'm not sure what is slated to be released this year.

What carrier are you on? This is really meant to be Samsung's flagship phone moving on, its their end all be all, and is pretty much Androids flagship phone going toe to toe with the iPhone. Im guessing the next iPhone will be out this fall if you aren't interested in android again.

I'm on Verizon. And I'm not really interested in an iPhone. We'll see what happens. I'll probably give in and get it.

I can't say with 100% certainty, but from what I've read it is likely, especially since the HTC Desire HD, which is almost identical to the Inspire, is for sure getting it. Here are a few links that I found helpful:

Just got the HTC EVO V a few days ago, can't believe I've never had a 4G phone before. The 3D makes my eyes go crazy though.

To this day, I still don't understand why anyone would choose an Android over an iPhone. Not hating, I just don't get it.
