Jelly Bean now running on 10% of Android devices, Gingerbread falls below 50% for the first time in a year


  • Chris Manchur

    Even though I love Android, I am kind of saddened that almost 80% of the devices are run by an OS that are 1-2 years old.

      Keep your hands off our tarsands. Its not yours, its ours.
      You all can freze in teh dark.

      You should take into account that most of this devices are older than 1-2 years and they simply cannot support latest firmware.

    I am runnin good ol’ Android 4.2.1 🙂

  • Sean

    I look forward to the day where they can simply sum it up with Pre 4.0 and Post 4.0 and go from there with 4.0, 4.1 etc

  • Bobby

    I am running 4.1 but I think the biggest thing that would keep people behind is not being ablw to save apps to sd without rooting.

    Running 4.2.1 on my Galaxy Nexus (yakju) and Nexus 10

    Are these phones that are currently being sold, or currently being used? How do they account for all the phones that are purchased without a data plan and then never connected to WiFi?

    • Sean

      They don’t they go by check ins to the Google Play store which i assume most people go to for either updates or new apps

    • Brad F(anboy)

      @Sean But a large part of Android’s market is $0 and prepaid phones, most of which are activated without data plans. Unless the users connect to WiFi to get apps they’ll never show up in Google’s numbers.

      These numbers are in no way a representation of all Android devices currently in use.

      The data is collected from the Play Store. It’s aimed at developers to help them better target their audience by letting them know what the people who are likely to download their apps are running on their device.

  • Rich

    The real question is how many of these are ROMS. Hell, even my Galaxy S can run Jelly Bean… not sure why there’s so many BS excuses about upgrades.

  • EvanK

    I’m sorry, but who the hell still runs Donut?

  • screamer

    First they should sell only unlocked phone. Then we would get updates faster! Simple and easy!

    Android makes my bum hurt 🙁
