iOS fragmentation on armv7 capable devices ?

Hey there,

I was looking for some numbers on Google but couldn't find them. So maybe someone here knows

We're finishing our latest game and we're wondering if there's any point supporting iOS4 at all. It did make a lot of sense a few months back (when you could still build for armv6 normally), but nowadays it seems to me like it's a waste of effort

After all it doesn't matter how many iOS devices run iOS 5+, what matters is how many "modern" iOS devices are on iOS5+. Or to put it in different words - how many 3GS/iphone4/iPad1 devices did not update to iOS5

Does anyone have any info on that or anything to point me in the right direction ?
