Android 4.0 started rolling out to devices last December. As of early July, though, it's on just 11 percent of devices, according to Google's own measurements. And that means the vast majority of people are still waiting for a taste. It's inevitable that upgrade availability and timing will vary to some extent from one device to the next; Nexus devices aside, after all, it's up to manufacturers to prepare and provide Android OS upgrades. For better and sometimes for worse, that's the nature of Android's open source model. There may not be a centralized system for upgrade standards, but there is a level of accountability. Many manufacturers make promises for when their devices will be upgraded — and with the second quarter now behind us, it's time to check up on those promises once again to see who followed through and who let us down."
The only possible interpretation of any research whatever in the `social
sciences' is: some do, some don't.
