There is good news for phone owners of the Google Nexus 7 and Galaxy Nexus. Both these devices are ready to get the Android 4.2 update beginning from Tuesday. We have seen that the whole stock of the latest Google’s Nexus 4 smartphone was reportedly sold out in just a few minutes. Android fans no longer need to wait for the supply from LG’s factory to get their hands on the latest version of the widely sought after mobile operating system.
The Nexus 4 and the Nexus 10 are the first smartphones to ship with the latest version of Android 4.2. This is the latest on the Jelly Bean update edition of the OS. Google has already begun making the update available over the air to owners of old Nexus devices as well. Specifically both these devices are ready for the upgrade that will begin from Tuesday.
Like in the past only owners of the HSPA/GSM version of the Galaxy Nexus can get the update. Those with the CDMA versions of the device from USA carriers- Verizon or Sprint need to wait for this Android update. The duration of the wait however is not defined as of now.
The owners of the Motorola Zoom tablet and the Nexus S handset are in store for a bigger disappointment. The new Android 4.2 OS will not be available for these devices. Google has however made updates for these devices available in the past as well.
The Android 4.2 OS provides users with both security and performance enhancements. It also includes improved GPU acceleration and new anti malware capabilities as well, It also brings a number of interesting features like multi-user support and other interactive screensavers and other lock screens. There is also a support for external displays. With this software you are also able to get a complete platform of improvements that are currently available on the developer site of Google’s Android.
The rollout of the update though starting from Tuesday does not mean that all devices will get them. There are some users who may have to wait for weeks or even months to get it.
As an integral of its latest developer tools package there are images of factory firmware images made available by Google. This is provided for all the Nexus devices that currently support Android 4.2. For advanced users who do not want to wait for an OTA update they can use these images for doing it themselves manually. However, if you are not sure you should not try it if you do not know it. This can lead to disaster and please do not say that we did not warn you!
As per the latest statistics released by Google over a half of the Android devices actively being in use are still operating on the 2.3 version codenamed “Gingerbread”. The Android 4.0 dubbed as “IceCream Sandwich is currently at second place. Jelly Bean comes third with about 2.7 percent of devices having its platform in their specifications.

Not so long ago we learned Google activates around 500,000 Android devices per day. Afterwards this number increased and reached 550,000 devices/day. But this platform had more potential than expected, and with the growth of its popularity, Google started activating more and more devices per day. The last indicator we talked about was 700,000 devices/day, but actually the software giant was activating 850,000 Android-powered handsets per day starting from April. Now this number has grown and neared one million.
Andy Rubin, Google’s head of mobile, announced through Twitter the company is currently activating 900,000 devices per day. Looking at the tendency Google enlarges its production we can be sure it’s on the verge of reaching the million.
Moreover, Andy Rubin also answered the question whether he has any plans to leave Google. In particular, he said those rumors didn’t correspond to the reality and he would continue working at Google.
On the whole, this news is not surprising because Google has entered a new phase, and besides launching its own smartphones and tablet, the company has also acquired Motorola and is working on Jelly Bean, which will be on more handsets than Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich. So wait for more gladsome news from the company in the near future.

People like numbers but not always the given data correspond to the reality because the surveys made by firms are based on the trend of the previous years, while the tech world doesn’t obey any rules. Of course, there is some regularity but no one can predict how the market will change in the coming year. In my opinion, London based research firm Ovum has introduced data that will never prove true. Anyway, my duty is to make you aware of it.
Ovum’s principal analyst, Adam Leach made a statement, according to which, 1.7 billion smartphones will be shipped in 2017. Moreover, the smartphone shipments will grow at a 24.9% compounded annual growth rate (CAGR) but the overall growth will be provided also with the help of feature phones. The analyst says the entire mobile phone market will grow at 6.3% thanks to demand from emerging markets.
The research firm has also computed Android-based smartphones will take 48% of the entire market, while Apple’s iPhone will own 26.8% of it. Moreover, the firm has already calculated Windows Phone OS will be on 13% of all smartphones launched until 2017, while Canadian RIM will take the 10% of the smartphone market.
Honestly, I’d like Android to keep its positions but seeing how RIM is going down, and what stir Nokia has made due to its Lumia series handsets, it’s difficult to believe Android will lead the next five years.
