It would be interesting to see how many people use phones/tablets with outdated android / iOS versions.

As a side note, is that the primary method that these embedded computers get updated? If I'm running Android 4.2, does that guarantee that I'm running a device that has outstanding vulnerabilities?

Very easily. Unlike Android, Apple has always allowed older iPhones1 to update to the newer iOS versions using the built-in app store update process. When I turned on my phone this morning, it had a notification dialog saying something like "iOS 8 is available. Do you want to update now?"

1 Older models up to a point (3-4 versions back). The original iPhone, for example, doesn't get iOS 8 today like the 4's, 5's, and 6's.
