As it does a monthly basis, Google has just released its Platform Version numbers to show a snapshot of the Android OS versions being used on devices today. With numbers taken over a two week period ending August 1st, we see small growths in the highest versions. Jelly Bean (4.1 and 4.2) rose to 40.5-percent — up from 37.9-percent last month — and together with Ice Cream Sandwich hit 63-percent of the install base.
Android 1.6, 2.1, 2.2 and 3.2 are all holding on by a thread, with under 5-percent share between the four versions. Gingerbread dipped slightly but is still holding strong at 33.1-percent of the install base.
This time around Google is also releasing a distribution chart of the different screen densities of devices in use today, which is quite interesting. Stick around after the break to have a look.
