Only 0.6-Percent of Android Devices Have Ice Cream Sandwich Installed

Illustration for article titled Only 0.6-Percent of Android Devices Have Ice Cream Sandwich Installed

It's been over two months since Android 4.0 (Ice Cream Sandwich) launched and the adoption rate is nothing short of pitiful. It's sort of a disaster.


The numbers, posted on Android's developer site, paint a pretty sad picture of adoption rates. The data was gathered during a 14-day survey of Android devices that had accessed the Android Market. 55.5-percent of the devices were running Gingerbread (2.3). The tablet OS, Honeycomb (3.0), only accounted for 3.3-percent of devices to access the site during the time period and Ice Cream Sandwich (4.0) posted 0.6-percent. Froyo, (2.2) which has been out for 20 months, is still chugging along at 30.4-percent.

Because it's up to OEMs to update the software for their devices and push it consumers, it could be a while before those Ice Cream Sandwich numbers start creeping up. [Android Developer via parislemon, 9to5 Google]

Arggh! there goes a...snake a snake!

I hear a lot of shit about fragmentation, but I haven't ran into any issues. I mean, yeah, I have a Galaxy S and can't run certain applications because I have an 'older' version of Android, but I accept that. I don't expect to be able to run the newest of the new apps. It's the same as with a computer. I can't play the newest video games at the highest resolutions all the time. I guess it's just something I accept.
