As each month, Google brings data from the penetration of the different versions of Android on the cake of devices, that giant with feet of clay that usually cost much to move from its position. Delaying is a little longer than usual, brings data collected in the period of 14 days ending December 1.
Over the last month, we see a relatively large step towards new versions of Android. It especially highlights Android 4.1 (Jelly Bean) that exceeds twice the relative its last digit, from 2.7% to a 5.9%, and that taking into account the various Nexus devices which have already moved to Android 4.2 (Jelly Bean) and have come out of that piece of the pie, holding his own in a modest 0.8%.
In addition, and bearing in mind that Android 4.0 (Ice Cream Sandwich) now occupies the 27.5% of the total number of devices, up slightly less than two points, we can say that Android 4 is already in 34.2% of devices. That is, one of every 3 Android devices have a version already walking right.
We also see how the Queen is still Android 2.3 (Gingerbread), still exceeding the half of total devices at a 0.8% and lowering a 3.4%. Further back are backward as Android 2.2 (Froyo) falling almost two more points to 10.3%, Android 2.1 (Eclair) falling 4 tenths up to 2.7% or less representative versions such as Android 1.5 and 1.6 (Cupcake and Donut) which are maintained in a remnant of 0.1% and 0.3% respectively.
While we see the table will advance very slowly through the levels below, is It moves relatively quickly in recent versions of Android. It must take into account that still many low-end mobile continue to sell with versions such as Gingerbread, and that we are talking about a total pie of more than 500 million devices.
