It’s February friends– so that means it’s time for the latest edition of the Android Distribution Chart highlighting what OS it is that us Android folk are using on our devices. Similar to what we saw in the last edition, Gingerbread is still on the vast majority of Android devices, but the overall number continues to decline at an almost free-fall rate. As of the time of this writing, Gingerbread is found on about 45% of all Android devices, down over 2% from the number seen in the previous Distribution Chart. In addition, the number of Jelly Bean devices continue to creep upwards as we are now seeing just a shade under 14% of all devices featuring a variation of Jelly Bean, while Ice Cream Sandwich also creeping upwards to 29%.

So yes friends we can finally breathe a sigh of relief— more and more of our devices are featuring current software (finally). Let’s just hope we see the overall number of Jelly Bean and Ice Cream Sandwich devices continue to creep upwards before Google’s next dessert arrives.
