Lollipop take up sucks

by on08 January 2015

KitKat doing well

Even though Google announced Lollipop back in mid-October its take up has been slower than an Italian politician to resign after being discovered to have been embezzling millions. 

Less than 0.1 per cent of Android devices had actually received the update. It seems that the problem is that while customers might want it, the phone companies have moved at glacial speed to provide it.
So far, only a handful of devices have received it, including the Samsung Galaxy S5 (but only in three markets), and Google's family of Nexus devices.
Things have been going a bit better for Android 4.4 KitKat which has seen a jump in the size of its installed user base in recent weeks. KitKat is now installed on 39.1 per cent of Android devices, up from 33.9 per cent last month.
Jelly Bean including versions 4.1, 4.2 and 4.3 remains the single largest block, collectively installed on 46 per cent of Android devices, down slightly on the previous month.
