Google will return December to Android 4.2 'soon'

Google will return December to Android 4.2 'soon' Last week, we reported about an unfortunate bug with the new Android 4.2 operating system found on the Galaxy Nexus, Nexus 4, and new Nexus tablets.
In the stock People/Contacts app, the month of December is completely missing, making it impossible to add events or birthdays for any contacts if that occasion is in December.

The bug was added to the bug tracker but Google has finally widely acknowledged the issue:

"We discovered a bug in the Android 4.2 update, which makes it impossible to enter December events in optional fields of the People app (this bug did not affect Calendar). Rest assured, this will be fixed soon so that those of you with December birthdays and anniversaries won't be forgotten by your friends and family."

Luckily for Google, Android 4.2 is only used by 1 percent of all Android users, as of today.

And anyone that is genuinely pissed should pipe down and get a life. Someone will express sincere anger I'm sure.

Um, not me really....This is bound to happen, as bugs get ironed out on any new OS, so just chill folks, there's more important things to worry about, such as to get a Samsung Galaxy III or a Galaxy Note 2..hmm.. I wonder??

I have the S3 and am trading it in for a Note 2. I love the S3. Hands down the best and coolest phone I've ever used. But...The Note 2 is just small enough to fit in a pocket and just big enough to actually 'enjoy' watching a move. The best of both worlds.
