Android OS version 2.3 Gingerbread has large share in current distribution at 47.6 percent, Ice Cream Sandwich version 4.0 stands at 29.1 percent. New comer Jelly Bean version 4.1 and 4.2 reached 10.2 percent market share.
The above data is collected during a 14-day period ending in January 3, 2013. You can see more details on Android Dashboard. Jelly Bean is reached 10.2 percent really quickly, If the Android OEM allow users to update their phones with latest version of OS, we may seen more percent of active Jelly Bean devices. This is the biggest problem in Android eco-system, the fragmentation. Its good sign that some OEM’s are releasing phones with stock Android OS (original OS from Google without any changes by OEM), So in future users may upgrade to new versions.
