Fragmentation of Android OS


We can say that iOS has lots of versions out in the rough. However studies have shown that above 90% of iDevice users have use iOS 4.0 or later. Android software, though, has a different case. And Michael DeGusta has obvious to examine the marvel. DeGusta removed an appearance at 18 well-known Android handsets and their support on behalf of the most new versions of Android OS. So, the results display a stand that is terribly fragmented. Below you can see some results of findings…

  • 10 of 18 were at least two major versions behind well within their two year contract period.
  • 11 of 18 stopped getting any support updates less than a year after release.
  • 13 of 18 stopped getting any support updates before they even stopped selling the device or very shortly thereafter.
  • 15 of 18 don’t run Gingerbread, which shipped in December of 2010
  • In a few weeks, when Ice Cream Sandwich comes out, every device on here will be another major version behind.
  • At least 16 of 18 will almost certainly never get Ice Cream Sandwich.

On behalf of starters, when Google releases latest Android version, not completely devices catch it right away. The producers and haulers have to acquire ahold of it first. Producers develop the update and have to alter their software so. Then it’s pushed on to carriers for beta testing. And meanwhile all of these companies change at their own pace, customers become screwed.

DeGusta also built an info graphic of the above info, which you can view here.
