Android 4.0 now found in 7.1% of Android devices
As time goes on, it shouldn't be surprising to see more and more Android devices sport Android 4.0. Just like we've seen over the years when a new Android build is released, the new software slowly picks up traction until it soon grabs a majority of the market share. Ice Cream Sandwich is now powering 7.1% of Android devices, up nicely from the 4.9% seen in last month's data. Android 2.3, which at one time was where Android 4.0 is now, has a marketshare of 64.6% to lead the way, an increase of .6% from the previous month. The data used for the charts come from the last 14 days ending June 1st

The increase in Android 4.0 use over the last month is probably due to the launch of a number of new ICS flavored phones such as the HTC One series as well as updates being rolled out to older models. Android 2.2 still accounts for almost 1 in every 5 Android units. The 19.1% slice of the pie owned by Froyo powered models will continue sliding lower as more owners update to the latest models.

Tablet OS Honeycomb has a 2.7% marketshare as more Android tablets launch with Ice Cream Sandwich. And lastly, those using a phone with Android 1.5 to 2.1 installed still make up 6.1% of users. The Historical Distribution chart shows that 75% of current Android models are working with Android 2.3.3 or higher.
