|No updates -> more drive to buy new devices. Android manufacturers, especially the more obscure ones, are more prone to this than even Apple is. |
My family owns three different types of devices (ZTE, HTC, and one other obscure model), and none has gotten updated from Android 4 yet. Granted they're cheaper (sub $200) devices, but that still shouldn't exclude them from getting updated to even the latest version of 4.
