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.

Personally I'd rather have Android where I get a choice of devices and price points than a "choice" of an insanely overpriced Apple or a grossly insanely overpriced MSFT.


Is Android really any better in this regard though? If you want a device with an unlocked bootloader AND be able to install the latest Android OS whenever you want, you're pretty much stuck with Nexus devices. In that regard, iOS has more configuration options to choose from (black/white, 16-64gb, LTE, four different form factors, etc) than the Nexus devices give you.
