Hey guys, 

I'm a writer for PhoneArena.com and I'm working on a piece about Android development, but unfortunately, I'm not a developer, so I don't know a lot of the more intricate things about developing for Android. 

The idea is inspired by +Koushik Dutta saying that he is considering "adopting an Android 4.0+ only app development policy", and I wanted to get some ideas as to what you all see as the pros/cons to this approach.

I understand that dropping support for 2.x leaves out just under 50% of the market, but I guess I'm wondering how much you find that those users use apps. Koush and some commenters have insinuated that the Play stats for apps show that most users that actually download apps are on 4.x anyway. 

What do you think? What are the pros/cons of developing only for Android 4.0+?
