The latest figures from Google’s Android developers’ website, concerning the market share of the various different versions of the mobile OS, have arrived and the good news is Jelly Bean is making swift forward strides.
In fact, Jelly Bean is now on 10.2 per cent of Android devices, which is up from 6.7 per cent last month, and way up from November when it was just 2.7 per cent. In other words, Jelly Bean usage has almost quadrupled in the past two months.
The vast majority of those are on Jelly Bean 4.1 – 9 per cent – with the remaining 1.2 per cent using version 4.2.
Gingerbread still remains the most-used version of Android, although it has slipped below the 50 per cent mark now, at 47.6 per cent. We can expect a swift decline from here on out, though.
Ice Cream Sandwich holds a 29.1 per cent share of the Android device market, up a couple of per cent on last month.
9 per cent of Android users have been left behind on Froyo, 2.4 per cent on Éclair, and 0.2 per cent are still munching on Donut. However, at least Cupcake use has now fallen below a measurable level – it was 0.1 per cent last month – and it’s effectively not around anymore.
