The manufacturers arent pushed to do it, becasue it prolongs the life of the old phone, rather than making the user want to buy an upgrade, they may get the update and put of a purchase. The carriers arent pushed to do it, its just mroe work for them with no real gain. Same thing with the purcahse as well. Update may put off an upgrade purchase.

quote: If Samsung decides at the last moment not to update the Galaxy S II, all Galaxy S II owners will get a value pack update. But so far there is no reason not to update the Galaxy S II to Android 4.1.
