The calendar just moved to December, and we all know what that means. New Android distribution numbers for the month of November! Jelly Bean had a significant growth this past month, jumping from 2.7% to 6.7%. This accounts for Android 4.1 and 4.2, so that number includes all of the new and updated Nexus devices. In retrospect, this is one of the more significant growths we’ve seen in the latest version of Android.
Jelly Bean isn’t the only version of the OS to see growth, as Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich saw a decent 2% bump from 25.8% to 27.5%. Android 3.0 Honeycomb saw a decrease to a total of 1.6%, followed by Android 2.3 with a still whooping 50.6%. That’s a small decrease from last month, but still holds the majority of Android devices by a huge margin.
Next up is Android 2.2 and 2.1, which held 10.3% and 2.7%, respectively. Rounding things out, Android 1.6 and 1.5 each kept a are hanging in there with 0.3% and 0.1%, respectively. Android version numbers are constantly changing, but it’s still bad to see that such an outdated version accounts for more than half of all devices. When do you think Gingerbread will lose its top spot?
