Android Jelly Bean Hits 33 Percent Adoption Rate in Latest Developer Distribution Chart

Android ecosystem, smartphone market share, tablet markets

Another month, another chart. Google has released the latest Android distribution numbers for June showing some significant number changes, especially where its recent version Jelly Bean is concerned. As expected, the most recent iteration of Android is still on the rise.

Android 4.1 and 4.2 Jelly Bean now combine for 33% of all Android OS installs according to the latest chart, up from 28.4 percent of the pie last month.

Amazingly, Gingerbread is still holding on to the lead, which could signify that much of Android’s dominance depends on low-end users who really don’t care what version of the OS they’re using (or what OS they’re using in general). Last month, Android Gingerbread was sitting around 38.5% and now it’s down to 36.5%.

Meanwhile, Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich is still holding strong at 25.6%, down from 27.5% last month.

These numbers come from Google based on devices that check-in and are active on the Play Store over the past few weeks. Android 4.3 Jelly Bean is coming up next, so we’ll likely see Jelly Bean growth continue as new devices running this OS are introduced.
