Anonymous, 30 Apr 2013gingerbread had alot of updates, from 2.3.0 to 2.3.7Like I said in the post below, the minor updates GB had do not make major updates.
API bumps are what is considered a major update. Gingerbread had only two major versions, and the first (API 9) was even deprecated, leaving Gingerbread with only one meaningful (i.e., useful, used) version today.
nmcunix, 30 Apr 2013This would be the first time that an Android version had more than 2 major updates. History sh... moreNo. Jelly Bean had two versions so far. A third version would put it right with HC and EC:
- Honeycomb: 3.0, 3.1 and 3.2 (APIs 11, 12 and 13).
- Eclair: 2.0, 2.0.1 and 2.1 (APIs 5, 6 and 7).
- Jelly Bean: 4.1.x and 4.2.x (APIs 16 and 17).
- Ice Cream Sandwich: 4.0-4.0.2 and 4.0.3-4.0.4 (APIs 14 and 15).
- Gingerbread: 2.3-2.3.2 and 2.3.3-2.3.7 (APIs 9 and 10).
- Froyo: 2.2 (API 8).
- Donut: 1.6 (API 4).
- Cupcake: 1.5 (API 3).
Jelly Bean would not be the first to achieve 3 versions (i.e., 2 major updates). Eclair was the first to do that, and Honeycomb followed.
Of course... some major versions had lots of minor versions (GB had at least 8 that I know, ICS 5 etc.), but they are bug fixes and backports (case of Open Accessory in 2.3.4) and not make a major version, nor they change the underlying system in meaningful ways to apps (like API bumps do).
guru p, 29 Apr 2013Try dolphin browser.. used to love dolphin hd but no more since it is too much bloated now.

solip, 29 Apr 2013sgs2 will not support because of hardware limitationsgs2 will support kie lime pie but its too old so samsung has made a dead end for this device otherwise it has similar specifications to s3
Anonymous, 29 Apr 2013With a Windows Phone launcher on Android, you're only experiencing 1% of Windows Phone lolThat is 200% more than I want to experience of it!
I suspect this is a minor update to resolve a few small bugs and security issues until KLP goes live. Just like 4.2.x was compraed to 4.1.x.

Droided, 29 Apr 2013I installed Windows 7 launcher on my old Samsung Galaxy S2 to see what WP was like and found ... moreYou need to use a true WP8 to know what it is like. It's about integrations, lag free, beautiful everywhere, and reliable (no need for reboot/factory reset).
Make sure that you put dual os (one is ios 7 and android 4.3)in iphone with four quad quore processor with 4 gb RAM ... Than it is advance phone ever.. no phone will beat...
Nexus 5 pushed to late Q4 so makes sense keeping the update to jelly bean
This would be the first time that an Android version had more than 2 major updates. History shows 2 major updates for the most e.g Gingerbread and Honeycomb. Oh well I guess a first time for everything, which is pretty lame in this case.
That's wierd. This is the first time I've seen Google do this. I remember when 2.2.1 was Froyo and then it jumped to the Gingerbread moniker with 2.3.
Maybe they got lazy and don't feel like abandoning the Holo look yet.
if a new version of android is released then some come to troll about fragmentation, if new version is not released then they come to troll and say old OS.
