Ice Cream Sandwich on 15.9% of devices, Jelly Bean on 0.8%
As happens on a monthly basis, Google has released the stats on who is using what OS version! Ice Cream Sandwich has increased by leaps and bounds, Jelly Bean is about to hit 1% and every older version of Android has decreased. It seems to me like we’ll finally be seeing a constant increase of newer version, accompanied by a constant decrease of older versions. In fact, I believe this is the first time that Gingerbread has decreased since it was first launched in 2010.
This increase of newer versions is due to more OS updates, newer phones coming out with newer Android version (except, of course, for Sony). It’s really great to see that the newest version of Android, 4.1 Jelly Bean, is gaining some headway and appearing on 0.8% of all devices. No doubt, this is for the international variants of the Galaxy Nexus, a few Nexus S phones and the US version of the Motorola Xoom.
If you’d prefer a more historical representation of the OS versions from the beginning of 2012 then you can check out this graph below:
