Android may be popular, but the latest versions of Android are still lagging behind the most-adopted version of Android: version 2.3.3 Gingerbread. This is a huge problem, but it looks to be something that is slowly losing its steam.
As of October 1, devices running Android 4.0 or higher, meaning Ice Cream Sandwich and Jelly Bean, represent a little over 25% of Android devices. Just 1.8% of these devices are running Jelly Bean, but that is quite new and only on a few devices right now, leaving ICS with nearly a quarter of users on the OS.
Android 2.3 Gingerbread really does dominate, with 55.8% of users on the OS. All previous versions of Android take up the remaining 16.8%.
