Every month Google publishes statistics on the coverage of their Android operating system, and this month the statistics released by Google show that a quarter of all Android devices are now running either Google’s Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich (ICS) operating system or Google’s latest Android 4.1 Jelly Bean operating system.
Last month around 20 percent of Android devices were running Android 4.0 but this month that has risen to 23.7 percent, with 1.8 percent of Android users running the latest Android 4.1 Jelly Bean software.
However on the flip side of the statistics this also means that still a massive 55.8 percent are still running Android Gingerbread which launched back in 2010.
But as more smartphone manufactures roll out Google’s latest Android 4.1 Jelly Bean updates to their smartphones, just like HTC is doing this month to their One X and One S devices, the adoption rate will surely close in on that 50 percent milestone.
