When Android KitKat officially saw the light of day, available information about the premiere features, changes in the software and the most important: the new policy in relation to older devices. It is this version of the Google wanted to start a fight with fragmentation, which greatly extends the giant of Mountain View. The company put her up to this task, as the latest edition of the software has brought a lot of better optimization while reducing hardware requirements, so that KitKat is available for virtually any device (the one with high and low price range). The manufacturer also simplified the approval process of renovation in order to maximize speed up sharing of amendments. All good (at first glance, of course). But where is the wide availability?

Still I read that Samsung, Sony, HTC and God knows who else, gave a list of models that will be able to "boast" the latest version of the system. However, these are high-end devices with pricing that is the more flattering. At the same time as newly announced smartphones and tablets will have to update the warranty. So how does it end up being? Google makes system for all, and the producers decide where to erect, carefully choosing the right resource products?

I know that such a decision is justified by the desire to make each of the companies (because in the end about the money it all shakes) and focus on selected products, but also effectively slow down technological progress. Google gave a kind of promise for us users, for a chance to get updated immediately to the latest content, also for devices weaker. Meanwhile, the producers behave as if they have obtained the guidelines, how they should behave.

I am of course aware of how much work it costs each manufacturer, but the presentation of the new system are still very few companies have updated their portfolio and tempted by improving the image. I was surprised by this news update almost the entire line of ASUS Padfone to KitKat – only the first generation that will not see (regret). The second edition (Padfone 2 of 2012) is based on the Green robot in version 4.1.1, but was on the happy list. You? You can! Too bad it's only a drop in the bucket. I hope that there is someone else who will fight on the field with Asus. Google's. Please, you do not give up and infected others desire to minimize the effects of fragmentation of your own child. For more third parties were (like you) the purpose and effective solution to this global problem. I believe in you. Published by Sławomir Grzelak.
