22 percent of Android devices now running 4.0 and above
The latest Android platform numbers have just been released on the Android Developers site, showing devices running Android 4.0 and above now making up a 22.1 percent share of the Android market. As expected, Android 2.3 Gingerbread devices still make up a majority of the market at 57.5 percent. All other versions under 2.3 now total up to a small but still noticeable 18.3 percent.
Most manufacturers have at least started pushing 4.0 updates to their handsets that launched on 2.3, and nearly all devices are coming to market with 4.0 or 4.1 on board now, which is a good sign. Seeing such a large majority of devices still on Android 2.3 and below really hurts when you know how great the experience on Android 4.0 and 4.1 is, and we can only hope that the share of devices running 4.0 and above can increase faster in the future.
