40 Percent of Consumers Stuck In The Old Android Software
Jul 23, 2010 8:00 AM –
According to released statistics by Google 40% of Android users are stuck with older versions of the OS. If your reading this post chances are your one of the 40 percent of us waiting on our carrier or handset maker to release Android 2.2 (Froyo) to our devices. According to the data just under half of Android users are supporting 2.1, even high performance devices such as the EVO, Droid Incredible, Moto Droid, and Droid X. Besides a somewhat slap in the face, all this data does is make me wonder, why Google insist on creating new, fresh versions of Android when no one can have them. Except their flagship Nexus One, who earlier this year got Froyo through a manual optional install, later on to receive an official OTA update. Well I guess once again like I did with my Hero, I wait and wait for the day my EVO will sport the likes of Froyo.
