February’s Android Distribution Chart is Out – Gingerbread and Ice Cream Sandwich Shares Grow Slightly

Back in January, Android 4.0 made up for all of 0.6% of the world Android market share. As of February 2, it has jumped up to a full 1% as a handful of tablets received updates from Honeycomb. Gingerbread as expected, remained king, growing another few percentage points thanks to updates on a number of phones.

Overall though, the pie looks almost identical to that of the previous month. While manufacturers work hard on updating their phones to ICS in the coming months, it likely won’t change much for a while.

    Before I bought my Nexus on day one, I had an HTC Incredible — it had version 2.3.4.  What’s up with the fact that 2.3.4 is not listed??

    • F1veO

       It is listed. Under the part that says Android 2.3.3 – Android 2.3.7. The group that has 58.1% distribution.

    when is my phone getting jelly bean?

    The only real “fragmentation” problem I see here are devices under 2.2. Having a good chunk of older phones on Froyo is understandable. Am I being naive?

      Yes. Every single Android phone is capable of Gingerbread. But I love Android :p

        Well that’s why I said understandable, and not ideal. Consider that I’m still using Windows XP on my work computer. =[

    So at earnings, Google said there are 250 million active Android devices, so 1% means 2.5 million are running ICS.

    I like how there is more 4.0.3 than 4.0.2 even though it’s not officially released on any phones

    Edit: a credit to the power of AOSP

    • Evan Knofsky

        I thought they pulled that update shortly after release, due to bugs?
