BlackBerry users still not upgrading to OS 6

Like the upgrade rates to OS 5, there is little change since last month in the rate of users who have upgraded to OS 6. This new operating system was first released for the BlackBerry Torch about half a year ago, but of those with devices that were promised the upgrade, well over 90% of users are still on OS 5.0 instead.


Device % at OS 6
91xx 1.1%
9300 1.3%
9330 7.8%
9650 5.1%
9700 3.3%


While these numbers have improved slightly, they are far lower then they should be. The leader is the 9330 which benefited from Verizon finally beginning to push OS 6 in the second half of January. However at the current rate it looks likely that OS 6.1 will be released before these rates hit 50%.

This data comes from January downloads of Pixelated, the second most popular game in BlackBerry AppWorld.
