Fragmentation stinks. If you own any Android phone you have fallen victim to it. Even the Verizon “Pure Google” Galaxy Nexus had to wait six months to get official updates to the newest version of ICS. Now Jellybean is out and who knows how long that will take to reach most phones. In the past few months, ICS has gone from about 3% of devices to almost 16% which is good progress. Sadly, Gingerbread, which is almost two years and three versions old, is on the majority of devices. It’s too bad Google can’t do something about it’s licensing that forces hardware builders to keep updated software.
