Google developers have just published their updated Android report for this January. Like their previous report they have also published couple of pie charts with a table which is showing the version distribution of the platform for January. From these below charts and tables you can get information regarding the relative number of active devices running a given version of the Android platform. These are showing the result for number of Android devices that have accessed Android Market within a 14-day period ending on 1st February, 2012.
Android Version Distribution Table:
|Ice Cream Sandwich
From the above chart and table we come to know that Gingerbread is also rocking this time with an increased share of 3.2%, while Android 1.5 Cupcake, Android 3.0 Honeycomb, and Ice Cream Sandwich (Android 4.0-, Android 4.0.2) remains same with the previous report. But Android 3.1 has decreased from 1.5%, to 1.4%, Android 1.6 Donut also decreased from 1.1% to 1.0%, and Android 2.1 Éclair also down to 7.6% from 8.5%.
Android v2.2 Froyo is still losing its share; it’s slipping 2.6 percent points to 27.8% share, which was 30.4% earlier. It’s all because of Gingerbread that most of the phones are getting Gingerbread updates, so Froyo share is declining day by day. While Android’s latest addition 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich is only the fifth most widespread release of the popular platform, but it’s still managed to gain 0.4% of market share in January, which is not bad actually for a platform that’s only runs on a couple of smartphones and one slate.
