    I'm confused,why does it matter if more than half Android users are running Jelly Bean?
    That seems doubtful...

    Why is it doubtful? Android Central is a reputable site just like WPCentral.

    I'd says it's more along the lines of imore. WPCentral admits OS flaws and that's why I like it. Those two and even wmpoweruser seem to be run more by fanboys.

    Im not doubting the data, im just trying to wonder why WE care about it LOL. It holds no relevance as KitKat wont be supported by all those devices anyway.

    That's great but I think people that are burned by a bad Android experience may not want to consider "future" low end devices because of the stigma
    But yet Android's market share continues to grow...

    WMpoweruser is a joke in my opinion, but I don't mind Android Central. I don't go to imore very much.

    Personally I don't care about it, I just threw it out there since someone had posted some numbers regarding jellybean.

    You're correct.

    It's a bait and switch the consumer supports willingly by buying low end, then buying again the high end.
    Over and over again people will but a lesser product when what they want or need is 10% only more.

    I don't blame any business for taking advantage of two sales prospects from the same customer.

    Microsoft has the exact same setup with surface rt vs pro, "home" vs pro vs ultimate vs vlk/enterprise etc

    Just like apple

    And Oracle
    And everyone

    So does the WP market share as well as the iOS market share. Only market share that isn't growing is BB.

    That is correct. According to recently released reports, iOS total numbers went up 26% from Q3.2012 to Q3 2013, but because of increased market saturation their market share actually dropped 2.2% in the same period.

    Guys think about this carefully.

    Lumia 520 didn't purely succeed because WP was optimized for low-end hardware, but rather, it offered the best value proposition at the price.

    When the L520 released the phones in its price neighbourhood were single-core Samsung Galaxy Ace IIs, i.e. genuinely crappy phones when pitted against the L520 (i.e. dual-core, IPS screen, etc). Yes, thanks to WP8's optimization and still relatively decent hardware the L520 did really well. Now Nokia is taking up a notch by offering the L525 with 1GB of RAM, i.e. bringing low-end capabilities up to par with all Windows Phones (as far as apps, games and features go) and Guru!

    IMHO if Microsoft/Nokia want to make a killing they need to continue disturbing the low-end as well as destabilize the mid-end.

    The mid-end should be redefined: take a premium looking chassis (e.g. 720) and load it with a quad-core S400, 720p HD screen, 1GB of RAM, PureView camera & Guru headphones...starting at $350. From a marketing angle take a straight aim at Apple, just ignore Android/Nexus. Everyone sees and knows iPhone, so just target iOS, and you've just opened another front for everyone to tackle.

    Add a minimum 16GB to it and thats what Nokia needs to do.
