Ice Cream Sandwich Now On 3% Of Android Devices
 
 

Adoption rate nearly doubles in weeks

Google has greatly improved in the number of Android devices that have Ice Cream Sandwich, but there's still a long way to go.

Google says nearly 3% of active Android users are running Android 4.0 or later.

The two first devices that were slated for upgrades - the Nexus S phone and the Transformer Prime tablet - ended up getting tons of negative publicity after the update crashed the system for numerous users. As a result, manufacturers have been increasingly tepid about pushing the update.

Nevertheless, a bunch of phones currently running an older version of Android will be eligible to upgrade to Ice Cream Sandwich beginning in the coming months.

It was just a couple weeks ago that Google said only 1.6% of Android devices were running ICS, so that number is finally starting to grow at a nice pace.


According to the latest official numbers, Android 2.3 - 2.7, also known as Gingerbread, still accounts for the vast majority - 63.7%.

That's followed by Android 2.2 (Froyo) at 23.1%, and then Android 2.1 (Eclair) at 6.0%. Android 3.0, Honeycomb, which is only used on Android tablets, accounts for 3.3% of Android devices.

Legacy versions Android 1.5 and Android 1.6 still make up a combined 1%.
