Infographic: Android Orphans – Visualizing a History of Support

Sad Android

While surfing around the web today, I stumbled upon this detailed infographic today.

And I think there’s much to it than just update support to devices – Android has been evolving at a furious pace, and the hardware that some of the top-end devices use – the processor – is faster than what I’m using on my desktop computer.

Point? Point here is – Android requires better specs every time it gets a major update. In that case, all those zillions of not-so-nicely-specc’d smartphones are left out, every time an update is announced. Sad for those owners, though.

Here’s the infographic. Sit back, take a cuppa coffee and go through it.
