Android monthly update: Gingerbread still has majority, Jelly Bean climbs up
In this month’s update concerning the distribution of OS versions across devices, we’re seeing things move forward… at least a little bit.
Here’s a rundown of the numbers:
|2.3 – 2.3.2||Gingerbread||9||0.2%|
|2.3.3 – 2.3.7||10||50.6%|
|4.0.3 – 4.0.4||Ice Cream Sandwich||15||27.5%|
The alarming thing, in this editor’s opinion, is the huge number of devices still running Gingerbread. While it is considered by many to be the most popular – and easily developed for – version of Android, a solid 50.8% of devices is too many to be running an OS version that old. However, it is nice to see ICS and JB take up a combined 34.2% of the share.
