The bad? Jelly Bean is only on a measly 2 percent.
The most popular version by far is still Gingerbread, which (in all its iterations) accounts for 56 percent of Android devices that accessed Google Play in a 14-day period.
Ice Cream Sandwich is up to 23.7 percent, so is just shy of a quarter of devices. That’s an improvement on previous records, but still lagging some way behind, especially considering it’s almost a year old.
And Jelly Bean. Oh, Jelly Bean. How you impressed us back in July, with all your new features like Google Now and the improved Voice Search. And now we find out you’re still only on 1.8 percent of devices. I know the Android rollouts have been a bit on the slow side, but Jelly Bean was supposed to remedy all this. Google promised to send out the platform development kit to hardware partners prior to each new software update. This was supposed to do away with the months of agonising waiting to see if your device (which you shelled out hundreds of pounds for) would get the jump to the latest version of the software.
What do you reckon of the rollout process for Android? Let us know in the comments below.
