Newer BBOS versions continue to see small gains


The use of BlackBerry OS 7.0+ and 6.0+ increased a bit for the second straight month in April. The use of OS 7.0+ is now up to 36.9% while the use of OS 6.0+ is now up to 65.8% of BlackBerry OS users. While these statistics become less important as users (and developers) start to migrate over to the BlackBerry 10 platform, it is still good to see more users on the newer versions of the operating system.

This data was taken from downloads of the free BlackBerry strategy game Pixelated. Data shown on the chart is from the beginning of April 2012 through the end of April 2013, and does not include BlackBerry 10 or PlayBook devices.
