Android 4.x FTW: Jelly Bean finally the king of the Android ecosystem
0. phoneArena 08 Jul 2013, 22:05 posted on
The new monthly Android platform distribution numbers have come out, and it's another big win for our theory that developers might want to drop Android 2.x support all together, because it was another big win for the Android 4.x set, specifically Android 4.1/4.2 Jelly Bean. As expected, Jelly Bean has surpassed Gingerbread to become the king of the Android ecosystem...

You do know that the people who have bought HTC phones get some pretty solid dev support. So whether or not HTC releases OS updates quickly or not is beside the point.

If htc and lg updated most of their flagship devices from two years ago, JB would be around 40+% I guess.

Have fun when KLP is designed to work on low-end phones and you guys with superphones get nothing.

Yeah, backwards compatibility is such a waste. How else is Google going to force us all to buy new phones and keep its best buddy Samsung raking in profits?

I believe he is talking about the rumor that Key Lime Pie will be a minimal operating system that will work on even the oldest of Android models. That way all Android models could run it.
Then, extra features would be downloadable apps. (i.e. all phones could run KLP, but only the phones capable of running Google Now would be able to download and run that app). As of right now 'tis just a rumor, but it seems plausible.
