As you may guess, the declines are largely restricted to Jelly Bean and earlier variations that you simply’d anticipate to be on their approach out. The actual query is whether or not or not Lollipop will collect momentum shortly. That ought to occur when new flagship telephones are simply round the nook, nevertheless it could possibly be some time earlier than you actually understand how nicely it is doing.
