Google So, Gingerbread has finally dropped below 50% of devices accessing Google Play. Ice Cream Sandwich has almost hit the 30%, and after six months, Jelly Bean (4.1 and 4.2) almost hit the 10%. Google's page listing these numbers is like a trainwreck in slowmotion.

The agerage man/woman in the street is

1) probably does not know what version of OS their phone is running
2) probably does not know if their phone supports a later version of the OS
3) probably does not know where to get updates/ new ROM's.
4) probably does not have the skill (or more importantly the patience) to load something like Cyanogen

Then there are makers still selling NEW phones with 2.3 installed AND there are no updates available from the maker to 3.x let alone 4.x

Thus, and in conclusion, is this really news?
Please note that I said 'The Average man/woman' and not the like of those who frequent places like this
