Google updates Android version market share numbers
Google, on their Android Developer website, just updated their Android version market share chart to represent the current market numbers (as on 1st August 2012) .
As we can see in the table below, Android 4.0 (Ice Cream Sandwich), launched in November last year, now accounts for around 16% of the total Android market. Version 2.3 (Gingerbread), launched December 2010, still leads the pack with over 60% of the total Android market.
The newly launched Android 4.1 (Jelly Bean) accounts for just 0.8%, which is understandable as Jelly Bean is now present (officially) only on Nexus devices, barring Nexus One.
You can check out the full table and a couple of cool charts below.
|2.3 – 2.3.2||Gingerbread||9||0.3%|
|2.3.3 – 2.3.7||10||60.3%|
|4.0 – 4.0.2||Ice Cream Sandwich||14||0.1%|
|4.0.3 – 4.0.4||15||15.8%|
