It’s time for another episode of Android’s current distribution everyone. In this segment, we’ll see Gingerbread’s long-standing domination
finally being challenged by Ice Cream Sandwich. Since Android 4.0’s introduction back in October, there’s been the clear trend highlighting the significant increase of devices operating on the latest OS. Currently, the percentage of Gingerbread 2.3 – 2.3.7 devices is around 64% out of the total number of devices, while the number of Android 4.0 – 4.0.4 devices is around 10.9%. Keep in mind folks— there have been an insane amount of newly released phones such as the HTC One Series and Samsung Galaxy S III and newly pushed updates of existing devices which helps to increase the totals for ICS devices.
While it’s exciting to see ICS’s expected growth in the Android distribution chart, you’ll notice the newly unveiled Jelly Bean is noticeably absent. We suspect once the Nexus 7 is released within a few weeks coupled with the immediate updates of the developer devices (Nexus S, Galaxy Nexus and Xoom WiFi tablet), Jelly Bean will make its mark in the next round of the distribution charts.
