Smart phone adoption of newer OS versions remains slow and steady

Adoption of OS 6 and 7 continued to grow at a slow but steady pace over the past month. 15.3% of users have OS 7.0+ and 44.8% of users have OS 6.0+.

Use of OS 5.0 and higher exceeded 95% for the first time in February. Use of older operating systems is down to less then a quarter of what it was just a year ago, and are almost gone for good. At this point developers should be thinking about cutting off support for devices with an OS version lower then 5.

This data was taken from downloads of the popular BlackBerry strategy game Pixelated. Data shown on the chart is from the beginning of February 2011 through the end of February 2012.
