Latest Android distribution numbers suggest Ice Cream Sandwich and Jelly Bean are on the rise

It’s a brand new month, which means it’s time for a fresh look at the distribution of current and past Android versions. As we had anticipated, Jelly Bean has grown ever so slightly, reaching just 2.7 percent of Android users, up from 1.8 percent in October. Ice Cream Sandwich has seen a significant surgance, measuring in at 25.8 percent, a minor increase from the 23.7 percent that was reported last month. Unsurprisingly, Gingerbread still dominates the platform with a massive 54.2 percent piece of the pie.

As Jelly Bean begins rolling out to more devices (we’re looking at you One X and Galaxy S III), this number is sure to increase. And, with a full-scale Nexus assault on the horizon, things are bound to get interesting.

    Just release JB already in the US. I hate US carriers.

      This is why I only recommend Nexus devices, and even in that sense, ONLY unlocked Nexus devices. Verizon has completely ruined this experience for me. That is why I am happily paying my ETF, getting a Nexus 4 and getting a $30 T-Mobile prepaid sim. If needed, I will also get a AT&T backed prepaid sim from one of those other carriers if better coverage is needed. I’m pretty excited that I will be able to do something like this. Cant Wait!!
