Android 4.0 now on 10.9% of Android devices
Android 4.1 may be on the Google Nexus 7, but it is too early to appear in the data
The history of Android can be viewed by going through the Android developers numbers and watching in each release how the latest Android build slowly starts to get traction and the older builds start to fade away. We've seen Froyo (Android 2.2) go from a small share of Android models to becoming the dominant build. We watched as Gingerbread replaced Froyo. Now, it is Ice Cream Sandwich beginning the journey from new upstart to eventually running on a vast majority of Android phones. It is way too early for Jelly Bean (Android 4.1) to register.

The latest numbers show that between Android 4.0 through 4.0.4, Ice Cream Sandwich is installed on 10.9% of Android devices. That is a far cry from the 64% using Gingerbread, but the launch of the Samsung Galaxy S III alone is going to shake things up in favor of Ice Cream Sandwich. 27.3% are still sporting Android 2.2, Froyo. The information, by the way, uses data compiled for the two weeks ended on July 2nd. Believe it or not, 4.7% of Android devices active are running Eclair (Android 2.1) while a combined .7% use devices running Android 1.5 and 1.6. How many Nuvifones are still in use?
