Android’s Jelly Bean adoption has soared and outpaced Gingerbread once again. As per latest figures from Google, Android Jelly Bean 4.1/1.2 is present on more than 40% of Google powered smartphones and tablets as of August 1. Gingerbread landed at 33.1 percent, followed by Ice Cream Sandwich at 22.5 percent.
Google revealed in its blog that Jelly Bean is now on 40.5 per cent of devices, compared to 37.9 per cent in June. Gingerbread, meanwhile has started to fade away with 33.1 per cent, down from 34.1 per cent in June. Devices powered by Ice Cream Sandwich amounted to 22.5% of Android models, down from the 23.3% in the previous month. Meanwhile, only a handful of devices are still running the earliest versions of the mobile OS. Around 2.5 percent are on Froyo, while 1.2 percent have Éclair, and just 0.1 percent are running Donut.
Last week, Google took the wraps off of Android 4.3, which is not included in this chart. Also, as the latest version of Jelly Bean will be rolled out on Nexus devices, it will likely change the numbers next month. The next update to Android which is rumored as Key Lime Pie is also expected to launch by year end. At present Android grabs 67% of market of the global tablet market share and 80% of smartphone market share.
