Today, Google had updated their Android Distribution Chart , which is generally a pie chart that shows the Android version numbers of devices which are accessing the Google Play Store. From the pie chart, we can roughly tell the percentage of devices that are running on the respective versions of the Android OS.
As most of us would have expected, the number of Jelly Bean users had been increased from 1.2% last month to 1.8% this month. Though you may say that it is just a mere 0.6% increase, but remember, there are millions of Android users out there, so this 0.6% increase may even be an increase by hundred of thousands Jelly Bean users! For this month, the Ice Cream Sandwich experienced the greatest increase again, from just 21% to 23.7% users within a month. This is not only due to the sales of new Android devices, but also more and more mobile companies are rolling out new firmware updates for their devices during the past few months. Similarly, it is also due to these filmware updates which caused a decrease in usage for the Gingerbread from 57.5% to 55.8%.
