The chaps at Android Developers have published the latest Android distribution figures, and it’s a familiar tale of things being, well, a bit all over the place.
Ice Cream Sandwich (Android 4.0) continues its slow climb through the teens, but that’s offset by the arrival of the spanking new Jelly Bean (Android 4.1).
The latest figures are based on visits to Google Play over the two-week period ending August 1.
The last time we looked at the stats (around a month ago), Ice Cream Sandwich had finally hit double figures. It’s now on an estimated 15.9% of Android devices.
Interestingly, Jelly Bean is already at 0.8% - accounting for almost one in every hundred Android users. That seems helluva high considering it’s only available on a small handful of devices. Hmm.
Needless to say, Gingerbread (Android 2.3) remains utterly dominant, at 60.6%. Of course, there are still Android handsets being released with Gingerbread, as opposed to the latest – or even second latest – version of Android.
Anyways, here’s the current breakdown:
- Cupcake (Android 1.5) – 0.2%
- Donut (Android 1.6) – 0.5%
- Eclair (Android 2.1) – 4.2%
- Froyo (Android 2.2) – 15.5%
- Gingerbread – 60.6%
- Honeycomb (Android 3.1-3.2) – 2.3%
- Ice Cream Sandwich – 15.9%
- Jelly Bean – 0.8%
