Latest Android version numbers indicate slow growth for ICS, Gingerbread

The latest numbers for Android versions were released by Google today, and they show a little growth in Android 4.0, and good ol’ Android 2.3.

The stats are from devices that accessed the Google Play Store in the last two weeks of last month. Android 4.0 ICS grew from just 2.9 percent to 4.9 percent, which was a slow increase probably thanks to the sale of more ICS phones like the HTC One Series, and updates for current tablets and smartphones. Android 3.0 Honeycomb remained at 3.3 percent because of the slow sales of Android tablets, while Android 2.3 Gingerbread saw a marginal increase from 63.7 percent to 64.4 percent, indicating folks are still buying Gingerbread phones.

No real suprises as such. Android 2.2 Froyo and 2.1 Eclair were on the decline (thankfully) at 20.9 percent and 5.5 percent respectively. Android 1.6 Donut and 1.5 Cupcake were at 0.7 percent and 0.3 percent. I feel really bad for those folks using those phones, seriously.

    I hope I will be able to get the ICS 4 at the fastest time.
