Android Jelly Bean Now On More Than 40% Of Devices

Last month Android Jelly Bean finally eclipsed Gingerbread as the most used version of the operating system, and this month, it’s continued to climb. The latest Android distribution numbers now show that Jelly Bean is running on more than 40% of devices today.

While we recently saw the fragmentation of Android in some interesting graphs, the majority of Android users are running on one of three versions of the OS (Gingerbread, Ice Cream Sandwich, and Jelly Bean). That said, both Gingerbread and Jelly Bean have multiple API levels.

Last week, Google took the wraps off of Android 4.3, which isn’t shown in the chart, given that it just began rolling out, but that will likely change when the numbers are updated next month. Still, what most Android fans are looking forward to is Android Key Lime Pie, which has been rumored for some time now. There’s a good chance we’ll see the next major Android version update in just a few short months, and it’ll likely say quite a while to become the most used version of the OS, just like Jelly Bean.
