Less than 2% of all Android devices are running Google’s latest operating system – almost three months after it was launched.
Phone manufacturers have long been criticised for not bringing Android updates to their devices in a timely manner.
Android 4.1 Jelly Bean was unveiled in July, but is installed on 1.8% of Android devices, according to Google’s stats.
More than 55% are still running Android 2.3 Gingerbread, just under two years after its launch.
The stats are based on the devices which accessed Google’s Play store over the last 14 days.
Several key Android devices, including the Samsung Galaxy SIII, are yet to receive upgrades to Jelly Bean.
Samsung has promised to roll out Jelly Bean to the UK at the start of October, and availability is expected imminently.

For about five years now, the question for smartphone buyers has been a classic either/or: “Android or iPhone?” Answering that question is more difficult than ever, thanks to large advances in Android, as well as the emergence of a third viable option: Microsoft’s beautiful Windows Phone OS.
This week, we’ll attempt to break down your three options, looking at each operating system’s greatest strengths and weaknesses. Which one you choose should depend largely on how you use your phone.
For the first part of this comparison, let’s look at the iPhone and the iOS operating system. The most oft-repeated (and spot-on) description of the iPhone and its operating system is that Apple knows what you want and gives it to you and doesn’t let you change it; you can’t really alter or customize the experience because — well, why would you want to?

Instagram for Android is almost here! While the popular photo-sharing service has been vague about how soon it will release an app for the Android platform, the company has opened a registration pagewhere Android users can submit an email address ahead of the new app’s official launch.
The pre-registration page, first pointed out by The Next Web, can be found here. Unfortunately, it doesn’t give any hints about how long you’ll have to wait to be notified that the app is ready for download.
Take a look at a screenshot of the page:
