Latest Android Distribution Reveals Gingerbread Down 4.4% and Jelly Bean Up 8.5%


The number of Android devices running Jelly Bean is on the rise. Last month we reported Gingerbread down by 1.4%, and Jelly Bean up by 3.2%. Just one month later we are happy to report a significant increase in devices running Jelly Bean of 8.5%, and decrease in devices running Gingerbread of 4.4%. Here are the latest stats:

  • 1.6 Donut – 0.1%
  • 2.1 Eclair – 1.7%
  • 2.2 Froyo – 4.0%
  • 2.3 Gingerbread – 39.8%
  • 3.2 Honeycomb – 0.2%
  • 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich – 29.3%
  • 4.1 and 4.2 Jelly Bean – 25.0%

This decrease in devices running Gingerbread is a great sign.  With devices like the HTC One X, X+, XL, X+ USA, Droid DNA, Butterfly, Incredible 4G LTE, and EVO 4G LTE all receiving the Jelly Bean update, and the latest slew of devices being released with it straight out of the box, we should see another significant jump in devices running it by this time next month.
