Once again, and as each month, Google refreshes us expansion of different versions of its mobile operating system fees. Although we saw made in early may as Android 4.0 (Ice Cream Sandwich) reached 7.1% of Android devices, this month is planted with a 10.9% of the total.
It may seem a very small figure, which is compared to the total, but in absolute values and taking into account that there are already more than 400 million devices with Android, this figure represents around 45 million terminal with Android 4.0.
Other versions of Android are located, by extension in the 64.0% Gingerbread, falling 1%; at 17.3% Froyo, dropping a 1.8%; in the 4.7% Eclair losing 0.5% and a minimum 2.4% for Honeycomb, which lost 0.3%. Older versions, such as Cupcake or Donut lose both a 0.1%, falling at a 0.2% and 0.5% respectively.
Although there is still no trace of Android 4.1 (Jelly Bean), rest assured that the introduction of this new version further contributes to this fragmentation, since surely many terminals that have been updated to ICS don’t run the same fate twice, despite the commitment with Google keep updated these terminals 18 months, we will already know.
It should be noted that, because much of the Android devices that are sold are of middle and low range this frangmentacion with predominance in versions like Gingerbread they will extend more than it should in time. And it is as I have said before, change the trajectory of 400 million devices already not so easy.
