Don't be surprised. Microsoft and Google are taking different approaches. Google compiles their code individually for the hardware, which means staggered releases. Microsoft compiles it once for all known hardware, which means a delayed released, but everything hits at once. It reduces the perception of fragmentation.

Microsoft basically makes the update, then gives it to all of the OEMs to make their device-specific changes, then it goes back to Microsoft to roll these changes into one update, then to the carriers for their tweaks, then back to MS to push out.
