DigitalTrends: Google will soon release Android 3.0, but 2.2 still hasn't reached a majority of users. Is the company fragmenting its OS?
Google is beginning to run into an updating issue. While the search company continues to release new updates to its Android operating system at a staggering pace (one every few months), its users are not adopting the software upgrades as quickly. As of Nov. 1, 92.1 percent of users have migrated away from Android 1.5, but far fewer are running 2.2 Froyo, Google’s current OS release, which was rolled out to devices in July and August.
