Google has updated its monthly Android distribution numbers and things are looking good for app developers supporting just Ice Cream Sandwich and above.
Android 4.0.x is actually down nearly 2% to 27.5% of users, replaced by Android 4.1.x, which rose 3.1% to 26.1% as of May 1st. Android 4.2.x is up 0.3% to 2.3% of users, while 2.3.x Gingerbread dropped yet again to 38.4%. Earlier Android versions such as Eclair stayed flat for the month, though Froyo dropped nearly half a percent to 3.7%.
Overall, though Android fragmentation is less of a concern than it was a year ago, it’s still disconcerting that Android 4.2, which is about to replaced by what we believe to be Android 4.3 at Google I/O, is still running on under 5% of devices. That number is sure to notch up a few digits when the Galaxy S4 is released in large numbers this month, but we’d like to see OEMs roll out updates to more devices over the summer.
