Ah yes, it’s that time of the month again. As an Android blogger, we see Google update the Android distribution charts every month. This month is like every other, with some number that seem just about right. Android 4.0 is currently sitting at 23% of all Android devices – a small bump from August’s 20.8% of devices. Jelly Bean also made a very minor bump, moving up to 1.8% from August’s 1.2%.
As for the other numbers, Gingerbread had a decline to 55.5% of numbers, and held steady at 12.9%. Rounding things off, Android 2.1 had 3.4% of devices, while Android 1.6 and 1.5 had 0.4% and 0.1%, respectively. Finally, Honeycomb variants had a combined 1.9% of devices.
There’s nothing surprising here, but it’s still disappointing to see how dominant Android 2.3 is on devices, considering it’s almost 2 years old now. Android manufacturers are finally getting around to updating handsets to Android 4.0, but it’s still sad considering the amount of time it has been out.
