This is because half of the phones out there couldn't get an update if you wanted to. Outdated within two years.
just for your information, everyone would wants to update their phone to JB but stuck at GB or ICS because OEM wouldn't upgrade due to hardware or just don't release the upgrade
LumiaNEXUS, 02 May 2013ginger was the best of Android, ics made it worse, jb is trying to recover ics's lossI completely agree with you. ICS was like the Android version of Vista...lol.

No way you're a N4 user. That phone is super smooth and solves the updates issues, sorry.
The numbers for Gingerbread are going to drop really significantly over 2013 because people who bough their phones throughout 2011 (GB) are going to replace their phones this year. Even though most 2011 models got updates, most people don't update their phones. I'm sure by the end of the year we'll see less than 10% of GB phones. Now 4.0 to 4.2 - not much has changed, to be honest. 4.2 Brings nothing new that is good to the table, just more clutter of rather useless features with almost no under the hood upgrades.
aniket, 02 May 2013sad story behind android,4 yr old éclair still is 2.1%, 2 yr old gingerbread still 28%....eclair isn't at 2.1%, it's the version 2.1 with 1.7%
GB the most popular as it is the most complete (useful)Android OS upgrade to date. JB is just an extension of ICS. My HTC raider 4g runs ICS and i fail to see any tangible difference or advantage having JB. Tempted to upgrade to HTC One (4.1) or SGS4 (4.2) but my Raider works fine so i'll save my money and wait.
Upgrade upgrade upgrade so you want to UPGRADE do not upgrade from gingerbread to ics unless you have 4 gb internal memory do not upgrade from ics to jelly bean unless you have internal memory of 8gb

Maybe some are right, that a lot of people don't actually know how to update their phones and aren't confident in doing so?
If they are getting full usage out of Gingerbread, then that tells a story about Android since V2.
Android has had every feature that people need since v2.3 and the updates have not really added much.

reading this, no wonder why ppl like ios and why wp8 is on the rise. Android is a total joke so fragmented and so slow to get updates. although i am a nexus 4 user, i cant wait for a high end wp8 phone to come so i can leave this fragmented world and go to a smoother OS.
