Android In June 2012: Android 4.0 User Base Rises To 10.9 Percent

As a bi-monthly tradition, Google has updated the Android user base pie chart on its developer website.

Now there is some fine news and some poor news. The fine news is that the Android 4.0 adoption is at an all time high. You may remember that we reported last month that the Android 4.0 user base stands at 7.1 percent. In a span of just one month, that has jumped to 10.9 percent, which is quite impressive.

The reason for this could be attributed to several popular recent handsets such as the HTC One series and the Samsung Galaxy S III shipping with Android 4.0 out of the box. Also, a lot of the older phones are now finally getting the Android 4.0 update.

Now comes the poor news. Despite the increase in the adoption rate, one can't ignore the fact that Android 4.0 is now 8.5 months recent and even then it is still running on 10.9 percent of all the Android devices out there.

Secondly, and this is worse, a staggering 64 percent of Android users are still stuck on Gingerbread, which is 19 months old. And even worse, 17.3 percent of Android users are on Froyo, which was released 26 months ago. And then there are some who are still on Eclair, which was released some time during the Stone Age.

What this tells us is that if you're waiting to acquire Android 4.1 Jelly Bean on your non-Nexus devices, you are going to have to wait for a long, long time.
