Google has updated Android developers with the latest Platform Versions data, giving app makers an idea of how the various iterations of Android are represented out there in the pockets and manbags of the world. The stats, for the fortnight ending June 3rd, are generated by tracking connections to Google’s Play service.
There have been some great big strides made by “Jelly Bean” and the earlier versions of Google’s 4.X build of the mobile OS, with some 25.6% of Android users now running Android 4.0 and a further 33% using either 4.1 or 4.2 on their phones and tablets.
But Android 2.3 continues its stubborn resistance, still powering the Android hardware of 36.5% of all users. A lot of people are still using Android 2.3 on cheap 7″ tablets :(
