August 2018 Android platform distribution numbers are out: Oreo up another 2.5%, no sign of Pie (yet)

Friday, August 31st, 2018

August isn't even properly over, but already Google has pushed the month's platform distribution numbers, detailing the precise statistics of Android versions used across devices. Last month's statistics were of particular interest after the two-month gap, resulting in some inflated numbers, but this month things are back to normal. As always, newer versions of Android are up, and older versions are (mostly) down. Interestingly, Pie has yet to rear its head, despite launching earlier this month.

Google’s July 2018 Android platform update shows Oreo usage more than doubling since May

Monday, July 23rd, 2018

We get it, Google. You're busy with a lot of things, and platform distribution updates can fall by the wayside. Still, the most recent two-month gap was unusual. Someone finally had time to spit out new numbers today, and it's actually rather good news. Oreo usage is up to 12.2% across both versions, which is more than double where it was back in May.

This market share for Google's latest OS version isn't objectively good, but it's good for a new version of Android.

Thursday, June 28th, 2018

When you've coughed up several hundreds of dollars for a brand new TV, the last thing you want to worry about is whether it will get firmware updates over the next few years or become outdated by then.

Huawei MediaPad M5 8″, 10″, and 10″ Pro are available on Amazon and Newegg for $319, $359, and $449, respectively

Tuesday, June 12th, 2018

First announced at MWC this year, the three different Huawei MediaPad M5 tablets are now shipping in the US and available from both Amazon and Newegg. Beside Samsung's Galaxy Tab S series, Huawei's MediaPads are the only other high-end Android tablets that are worth looking at, and this new iteration is better while still being priced realistically.

The three variants have nearly the same specs: 2K display resolution, Kirin 960 CPU, 4GB RAM, 64GB storage with MicroSD, 13MP/8MP cameras, USB-C, and Android 8.0 with EMUI 8.0.

Android 8.0 Oreo rolling out to some Xiaomi Mi Box owners

Wednesday, May 2nd, 2018

The rollout of Android TV 8.0 has been slow, to say the least. The Nexus Player received Oreo as its final update, and the Nvidia Shield won't get it until later this year. The Xiaomi Mi Box was released internationally in 2016, and even though performance was sub-par, it was still a popular Android TV box for a while. In a strange turn of events, the Mi Box might get Oreo before the Nvidia Shield.
