Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich now running on 7.1% of all Android devices
According to the Android developers blog they now say Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich now powers 7.1% of all Android devices, an increase of 2.2% from 4.9% last month. The spike was most likely due to the release of Android 4.0 smartphones, such as the HTC One X, S, V and the number will only jump up even higher as Samsung Galaxy S III’s make it to store shelves around the world as well as carriers on June 20th and beyond.
While ICS numbers grew, so did the old Gingerbread Android 2.3 OS, raking a total of 65% of all devices, up a tad from 0.6%. Two generation old Android 2.2 Froyo, still makes up a significant number of Android devices, representing 19.1%. Meanwhile the now ancient history Cupcake, Donut and Eclare are heading to its last days making up a combined total of 6.1%. Honeycomb 3.2 has also taken a dive from 3.4% to 2.7%.
While carriers control the update roll-out process, Ice Cream Sandwich is definitely on the rise, but as soon as next month we can see what the next Android OS, presumably Jelly Bean, may make an appearance at Google I/O (Input/Output) event in San Francisco that will run from June 27th – 29th, 2012. The Moscone Center will be hosting the event.
