Fragmentation of Android


Google Android is the dominant smartphone operating (OS) ecosystem. However, many OEMs are not able to implement regular updates to the latest version leading to a significant fragmentation of the Android installed base. Older versions fail to deliver new features to end consumers and are also potentially vulnerable to malware attacks. This scenario is common across different vendors, regions and price bands.
