When Apple unveiled iOS 5 earlier the year, iPhone 3GS users were relieved to find out that it was also compatible with their devices. This meant that iOS 5 was compatible with three iPhone generations – the new iPhone 4S, iPhone 4 and iPhone 3GS.
Michael Degusta has published an awesome chart that provides an overview of the update history for Android-based smartphone.
I found every Android phone shipped in the United States1 up through the middle of last year. I then tracked down every update that was released for each device – be it a major OS upgrade or a minor support patch – as well as prices and release & discontinuation dates. I compared these dates & versions to the currently shipping version of Android at the time. The resulting picture isn’t pretty – well, not for Android users.
