If you have happened to receive an update to Ice Cream Sandwich on your Android device in the last few months consider yourself part of the lucky few. Google has just announced the latest figures for platform version market share and the latest Ice Cream Sandwich update holds just 1.6% of the market. This data is based on the number of devices that have accessed the Android Market in the previous fortnight.
Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich’s uptake is growing nicely, this month it is up to a whopping 1.6%, up from 1% in data collected in January. Expect this number to grow significantly as new devices are launched and existing ones are finally updated. Android 2.3 Gingerbread is also still growing, the year old smartphone operating system is now on 62% of Android devices, up from 58.6% earlier in the year.
Android 2.2 Froyo takes a bit of a nose dive, down to 25.3% from 30% just a couple of months ago. While Android 3.x Honeycomb tablets gobble up 3.3% of the Android pie.
Kitguru says: Expect Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich’s numbers to grow in the next few months as Android smartphones and tablets are released or recieve updates.
