Finally! All Android phones will get the latest security and feature updates!

Google about to change Android’s sad history of support! Dan Frommer:

Newest version of Android Ice Cream Sandwich 4.0.4 was released on March 29, 2011, and here’s Android platform versions now:

  • 25% of users are using 2.2 Froyo (released on May 20, 2010) and are 679 days behind
  • 61% of users are using Android 2.3.3 to 2.3.7 Gingerbread (2.3.3 released on February 9, 2011) and are up to 414 days behind

The number does not include the most popular Android tablet, the Kindle Fire, which runs outdated Android OS. It is not included because the Kindle Fire does not access the Android Market.

Those seeking to update their Android with latest software should dream on. Google doesn’t care if Android users have the latest security patches, as long as Google can get track users and get ad revenues from them.

  1. Android, like Google itself, is frankly a joke!

    Um.. There is nothing wrong when people sticking with Windows XP, it was like 10 yrs old technology. We have to understand why it happen, because it is good. Not beautiful, but good. So back to Android, I guess if they want to stuck with old OS, do it, cuz I think either use that OS of version for develop or simply hardware not capable to run anything new. It is a disaster for Andoid developer, but user don’t care, It is a love and hate situation here. They could have done better, but hey, this is why people love Apple, right?
