Google Yes, it's been a long road, but Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich has achieved a major milestone. Just over half a year since it's been released, Google's latest Android version has crossed the all-important 7% installed base barrier. This is a major achievement for Android, so Google has reason to celebrate. I'm proud to be part of the 7.1%.

You totally don't get it.

The vast majority of the cool and competitive features in Android are not available in earlier versions so if only a small percentage of users upgrade it means developers need to write to some ancient version to support the bulk of the user base.

Meanwhile, in the iOS world, a developer just writes to the latest version, knowing that most of devices in the wild will be on that version.
