For folks who love statistics as it helps them draw up different conclusions, here are the latest bits of information from Google where distribution statistics of the Android mobile operating system is concerned. It seems that 13.6% of Android devices are running on the Jelly Bean platform, with 12.2% of those using Android 4.1 while a mere 1.4% have Android 4.2 up and running, which makes perfect sense actually, since not many devices have received the Android 4.2 update in the first place. Just to recap, Android 4.1 Jelly Bean delivers new technology such as Project Butter for a smoother user experience, in addition to Google Now that pushes useful information to users in a timely manner.
Most of the Android users still run on Android 2.3 Gingerbread, numbering at a whopping 45.6%. If you were to break down that figure further, 45.4% of them are using Gingerbread 2.3.3 to 2.3.7, and Android 4.0, Ice Cream Sandwich saw an extremely small retreat to 29% from 29.1% last month. Perhaps this is an indication that the Jelly Bean revolution is about to begin in full swing. Which version of Android are you lumped under?
