The February numbers are out for the distribution of Android versions across the over half a billion devices out there. Basically it appears that trends from previous months are continuing or in other words the instances of devices running Eclair, Froyo, Gingerbread and Honeycomb is continuing to decline in usage as either more devices have their software upgraded or people upgrade to new devices running later versions of Android.
|4.0.3-4.0.4(Ice Cream Sandwich)||29.1%||29.0%|
(Edit: Got the numbers for Honeycomb mixed around, updated now)
So there you have it, Android 4.X devices are certainly proliferating and with the sub-$50 Ice Cream Sandwich running Huawei Ascend Y201 popping up at Coles a couple of weeks back it’s a sign that Gingerbread is definitely in decline as the go-to OS for the mass market phone makers.
I’m also offering cash to anyone who still has a device running Cupcake right here and now. Tweet me, email me, Google+ me, anything! I intend to start a Cupcake based user group to skew the numbers, we only need half a million or so of us.
