The last time we looked at the Android version number distributions, Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich had a 4.9% piece of the total Android pie. Google just released the latest numbers for the two weeks leading up to June 1st, and now we see ICS has grown 2.2% to a total of 7.1%.
Though the growth is admirable, keep in mind that the ICS SDK was released 8 months ago in October. To only be on 7.1% of all Android devices out there doesn’t say much for the time it’s taking manufacturers and carriers to upgrade existing devices.
Other notable changes:
- Honeycomb is down 0.6% for a total of 2.7%
- Gingerbread is up 0.6% to a total of 65%
- Froyo is down 1.8% to a total of 19.1%
- Eclair is down 0.3% to a total of 5.2%
The trends are mostly moving in the right directions, with Gingerbread’s growth slowing down slightly and ICS’s rate increasing just a bit. Maybe now that the HTC One X and Evo 4G LTE are making it to stores, and the Samsung Galaxy S III is on the way soon, the next platform numbers may show a larger bump for ICS.
