Android is (and really always has been) an extremely popular mobile operating system among consumers, and the latest report from Google completely backs that up. While Apple’s new OS adoption rates are extremely high due to the ability to upgrade devices easily, Android has a surprisingly large number of people running Android 4.1 and 4.2 Jelly Bean. Now, Jelly Bean can be found running on 10.2 percent of Android devices. This number has skyrocketed not only in the past year (last time at this year, it was at a .6%), but even in the last few months (in August, only .8% of devices were running Android Jelly Bean.
One interesting, yet not surprising whatsoever, is the fact that Gingerbread (Android 2.3) still holds a 47.6% of Android devices, and while it’s not surprising that this version is still the most popular, it is worthy to note that this is the first time that Gingerbread has dropped below 50% of the devices.
