STATS: Android 2.3 still powers 45% of all Android devices

Google has collated another month’s worth of Platform Versions data, letting us see how its patchwork mobile OS landscape is assembled right now. As of February 4th 2013, the very latest Jelly Bean code now powers 13.6% of the devices Google saw connect to its online services, up marginally from 10.2% last month.
