Poll results: Is Android L the most important Android update ever?

One of the biggest software-related news in recent months was the announcement of Android L, Google’s brand new Android iteration that will be released sometime this fall. Google showcased a lot of the features that Android L comes with, and it even made a developer preview available for its Nexus devices (only owners of the Nexus 5 and Nexus 7 2013 can get it at the moment).

While some things about Android L may change before it reaches regular users, it’s already more than obvious that this is a massive update. But is it the most important Android update ever? Well, we ran a poll last week, asking you exactly this question.

From the total of 4,843 votes, 2,307 voters (47.64%) are already convinced that Android L represents the most important update since Google’s platform was first announced back in 2008. 1,878 voters (38.78%) aren’t so sure about this, still waiting to test Android L before deciding. Finally, only 658 voters (13.59%) said that the L release isn’t the most important Android update yet (with ICS, Gingerbread, or Jelly Bean being more important to some of our readers).

In case you didn’t bother counting, Android L is the tenth major Android update. Before it, we had Cupcake, Donut, Eclair, Froyo, Gingerbread, Honeycomb, Ice Cream Sandwich, Jelly Bean, and KitKat.
