Latest Android platform figures released.

It’s that time of the month folks, Google have released the platform usage figures up to the 3rd of January

Latest Android platform figures released.


The good news here is that Jelly Bean has had a reasonably large jump from 6.7% to 10.2%. Clearly a lot of people got Nexus 7’s for Christmas (Maybe Nexus 4’s too but thats less likely). Gingerbread fell again and dipped under 50% for the first time. 39.3% of users are now using a Version of Android that was released within the last 14 months which is a step in the right direction. Ice Cream Sandwich grew slightly as well.

Hopefully this shows that both consumers and manufacturers are keen to be on a (reasonably) new version of Android. The next OS update probably won’t be until Google I/O in May at the earliest so there are a few months to build on this foundation. Less Gingerbread and more Jelly Bean is the key (Lime Pie? Sorry, I couldn’t resist).
