Jelly Bean, Ice Cream Sandwich see big install jumps

Android logoGoogle released the newest figures for install bases of its various Android versions today, showing significant growth for both Android 4.0 and Android 4.1 devices, even as version 2.3 remains by far the most prevalent version. The analysis, drawn from data collected during a 14-day period ending on December 3, 2012, illustrates the still-fragmented nature of Google's Android platform. It also indicates though that users are upgrading to newer versions at an accelerating pace and that newer Android handsets are selling fast enough to account for a significant and increasing share of Android installs.

As of December 2, fully 27.5 percent of the close to 500 million Android devices were running Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich. That's up 1.7 percent from November's install base.

Android version 4.1 Jelly Bean more than doubled its install base over the last month and now accounts for 5.9 percent of all Android devices. Version 4.2, which debuted with the launch of the quick-selling Nexus 4 and the Nexus 10 tablet in late-October, now accounts for 0.8 percent of Android installs.

Overall, though, the Android install base is still dominated by version 2.3 Gingerbread. Gingerbread still accounts for 50.8 percent of all Android devices, though that figure is down 3.4 points from November's numbers.
