Android Distribution Numbers Updated For April 2013

Google updated its Android distribution for the month of April. And nothing is a surprise. While Android 2.3 Gingerbread still holds the majority share of the pie, Android Jelly Bean is still climbing.

Collectively, Android Ice Cream Sandwich and Jelly Bean hold over 55% of the chart you see above, meaning that there are more users rocking the Holo UI than the rather drab in comparison Gingerbread. Still, Android 2.3 Gingerbread still holds a whopping 38.5% of devices. As far as other versions of Android go, Froyo and below are currently holding onto to 5.5% of the chart, and Android 3.0 Honeycomb remains the blip that it always was at 0.1%.

With Google I/O just two weeks away, there’s a good chance that we’ll see the search giant announce a new version of Android. Whether it will still be Jelly Bean or Key Lime Pie remains to be seen, but the Android chart above is starting to get a bit crowded. While this can be frustrating for a developer, consumer interest certainly isn’t waning for Google’s mobile operating system. Handsets like the Samsung Galaxy S 4, HTC One, and Sony Xperia Z are powerful handsets that will be in millions of people’s hands soon.
