I am not saying that the carriers and manufacturers are not partly to blame, they most certainly are, but Google don't exactly help. If I remember correctly one Nexus device got licensed by Google and updated to JB from ICS within a week. Another Nexus device made by the same manufacturer finally got the "green light" from Google 3 months later! How is that the fault of the manufacturer or carrier. All Nexus device run stock Android, so what would be any different in the validation process? Answer? Nothing!!

why 4.1 & 4.2 grows slow ?
because this OS update just for high-end device user only.
if you want to increase 4.1 & 4.2 grows, than you must share the OS for midlle-end or maybe some low-end and that will grows Jelly Bean user.

Simple reason is that majority of android devices dose not receive the updates of android 4.1 and 4.2 if updates are available then every user shall update their devices......

The only reason Android OS 4.2 is slow is because of the carriers delaying the updates to there phones. If the companies such as HTC, Samsung, LG supplied the updates themselves to their products like Apple does to IOS, then more devices would be using 4.2.2

It is obvious that aprox. 50% of Androids are used as good old Nokias - just for calls, not as smart-phones.

I am only trolling you "Killer Droid" yes only you because the way I read your comments in every Nokia Forums trolling with useless/lack of information bashing about Nokia and Windows etc. That is what rockets me to counter your troll so I did a bit. Otherwise, I am not trolling any where.... Believe me or not? Choice is yours. I don't care what else you think, it is just you are not worth my time kid.

So most Android users *enjoy* the buggy as hell and universally awful experience of 2.3.7 Gingerbread! GREAT! That's why nobody likes Android...

In terms of OS I like Windows Phone 8 because its fast at doing tasks, opening apps etc & is one of the most secure OS that are currently available. Android is still able to get virus, like iOS the device gets slower with updates & applications are not reviewed.

Right now there really isn't any challenge, only go for WP if you *really* want a Nokia.
