at least 4.3 would be great, for having BLE and stuff.

A few years a go had updated my tablet (HP Touchpad) with original OS webOS and made it dual boot, both webOS and Android v4.1.4

Now I've found a new Android ROM v4.4.4 and updated it again. So my 6 year old tablet can run a newer version of Android than my much younger jolla phone. Also have found ROM for Android 5.0 (Lollipop) and even Android 7 (Nougat). The only reason for not updating to the latest ROM is that some hardware features of the Touchpad (like camera) don't work 100% but they are working on it.

So I cannot imagine jolla (newer hardware) has a problem updating to the latest Android version. They only have to allocate resources

@ymb, @jayki, @simo, @yves:

I do not agree that this question is a duplicate of the one linked by @jayki.

@yves is not so much concerned by Android version as such, than requesting to have BLE support and stuff (quote).

Question linked here as answer deals with support lifetime contractually offered by Myriad, management of Android code by Google, replacement of Dalvik with ART (!?), and lots of very interesting rants on version management.

Question related with support of most recent devices requiring BLE capabilities of smartphones and how to tackle this issue is this one: https://together.jolla.com/question/4938/android-bluetooth-support/

In the other question, @yves already commented that his concerns is strictly related to wearable devices, not Android version number as such.

Therefore, answer to current question should redirect to here, where discussion and suggestions are currently happening: https://together.jolla.com/question/4938/android-bluetooth-support/

Thank you @ymb or @simo for correcting this, as I'm far from having your karma and number of points that would allow me to do it - I'm not as powerful as you two are :-|
