It is well worth the effort to pay attention to the number of users who have jumped aboard the Jelly Bean bandwagon, and by this, I mean the combined efforts of Android 4.1, 4.2 and 4.3, just like how we lump Android 2.3.3 all the way to Android 2.3.7 under the Gingerbread moniker. In fact, the latest figures from the Android Dashboard do point out that the base version of Android 4.1 Jelly Bean already takes 34% of the active devices cake, and when you combine it with — singlehandedly surpassing the old guard’s 33 percent share of the market. When combined with the rest of the Jelly Bean “team” (meaning Android 4.2 and above), then Android Jelly Bean comes up tops with a 40.5% majority.
Other versions of Android, including Ice Cream Sandwich (v4.0.3 through 4.0.4), Froyo (v2.2), and Eclair (v2.1) and all took some hits, with Honeycomb (v3.2) and Donut (v1.6) holding steady with their 0.1% market share. It would be interesting to trace down whoever else is left with Android devices running on Donut, perhaps it is time to consider an upgrade to a newer device?
