Google "The announcement that Nexus One users won't be getting upgraded to Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich led some to justifiably question Google's support of their devices. I look at it a little differently: Nexus One owners are lucky. I've been researching the history of OS updates on Android phones and Nexus One users have fared much, much better than most Android buyers." I'm happy the modding community takes care of orphaned devices, but a solution it is not. I'm hoping the crop of Android phones released this past year - which were not included in this analysis - fair better. If there's one thing Google should steal from Apple, it's their iOS update support.

That's the thing - the same applies to updates. I have yet to encounter an iPhone or iPad in the wild which was fully updated - other than my own. Just about every iPhone I've seen was running the version it came shipped with.


Well my personal experience paints another picture, most of my friends, family and classmates at uni both in the UK and Sweden are up to date.
However, that's a very small sample, I think the following link paints a clear picture. This was before iOS 5.
