Android's Jelly Bean software is gaining more and more traction with smartphone and tablet owners, although a large portion of the community is still chugging along nicely with Gingerbread.
Google's latest update to their monthly developer dashboard report tabs a marked increase in Jelly Bean's install base, now clocked at 10.2 percent between two updates.
Here's the current list of Android versions by percentage share among all mobile devices, per Google's inter-company data:
- Jelly Bean - 10.2%
- Ice Cream Sandwich - 29.1%
- Honeycomb - 1.5%
- Gingerbread - 47.6%
- Froyo - 9.0%
- Eclair - 2.4%
- Donut - 0.2%
That's a solid change over the last two months, to say the least.
Last November, Android 4.1 and 4.2 was tallied for only 2.7 percent of active Android devices, growing to 6.7 percent by December's reports. During 2013, expect that number to increase even more as Jelly Bean rolls out with more devices and certain Ice Cream Sandwich gadgets.
