    We may see a faster turn around time with JB from ICS because they are fairly similar, unlike from Gingerbread to ICS which took FOREVER, due to the fact that the systems were so different, Motorola (and other companies) had to completely re-write EVERYTHING for the phones that had already been released and aren't as important to the time table.

    Honestly, Google is to blame, they only code in the drivers for the Nexus devices (who can blame them) and let the manufacturers do the rest.
    I am a pc developer not mobile, so I may be off base, but I find it hard to believe the drivers would need to be rewritten for an incremental OS upgrade using the same kernel. Also that does not explain why the Xoom is not a Nexus and it is always the first to see updates. Even before some Nexus devices.

    Jelly Bean is almost entirely under the hood upgrades to ICS. Pushing JB without new drivers is equivalent to trying to run a fuel injected engine with a carburetor without any modifications.
    If we all agree on it, it must be true.[citation needed​]

    if the same kernel is being used, I don't know too much about ICS --> JB, then yeah I'm sure some of the same drivers and libs would be recycled and maybe just refined, it not even touched at all I am not sure. So that would deff help in the turn around for updates. I just know that one of the major factors from going to GB to ICS was because of the kernel and drivers etc, add that on top of the companies needing to find time to update those phones, no wonder it took so long. we do seem to be seeing faster turn around times with ICS --> JB.

    As far as the Xoom, technically you could call it Nexus, cause it was Google's first flagship tablet, so it would make sense to upgrade that first since its all AOSP and was one of the only AOSP tablets out there till the N7.

    Hopefully the manufacturers have a system down now that allows for quicker turn over in updates. Maybe enough ppl itched and complained about how long it took to get from GB --> ICS and the manufacturers are taking notice lol

    there are of course many other factors, not just these, but these seem to be the more obvious to me (us) at least.

    IMHO, JB is going to be a big letdown. On my Xoom, the jump from HC to ICS was noticible and somewhat of an improvement as it was for my Razr. However, on teh Xoom, the jump from ICS to JB was not much of an improvement at all and it seems like my xoom runs slower. Given that, I feel the same will be for the razr.

    I am eagerly awaiting JB for my Razr Maxx. The move to JB on my Xoom tab was great. My experience is much different that YellowJacket. JB made my tab faster and really love Google Now.

    I was curious how everyone exclaimed how JB was going to be so much smoother and save the world? At first my Asus Infinity did seem to almost operate at a slower speed. I wondered how my tablet was slower than everybody else who said it sped up their OS? After having it for about a month JB seems to be panning out. It definitely did not speed up but rather it has smoothed out the Android hiccups. I am noticing more and more little things about JB that is winning me over. I find that JB is adding little additions almost like a refined ICS. It may be that IDK. Overall I am happy that the transition is smooth and getting better day by day. As time goes on Android is avoiding major problems like first experienced with gingerbread, froyo, ICS etc... I think generally everyone will be happy with JB overall.
