If you missed out the BlackBerry Jam virtual event earlier today, then you missed out on some very important numbers being shared by BlackBerry and those are the adoption rates surrounding BlackBerry 10 OS. As you can see from the image above, BlackBerry 10.2.1 has an adoption rate of 74 percent while 10.2 is hovering around 6%. Now, those numbers are great but what's interesting and perhaps not so great is the level of users on 10.1 still, which is pegged at 15 percent and then it moves into 10.0, which is at 5 percent.
I have no idea who would still be running 10.0 or 10.1 at this point, I can only assume it's devices not actually being used on a regular basis and only turned on every now and then. Hopefully, they'll dig them out and update when the soon to be appearing 10.2.1.3247 OS is readily available. The other thing not accounted for here, and understandably so, is anyone out there running leaked or developer builds of BlackBerry 10.3 on his or her daily devices.
In any case, the majority of BlackBerry 10 users are on the latest OS and that's great not only for them as end users of the device due to all the improvements BlackBerry has made, but it's also a very important metric for developers because it allows them to create and target apps for potential customers without any conflicts of them being on an older, less supported operating system.
