Android Distribution Numbers Updated – Gingerbread At 54%, Android 4.x at 28.5%

Google has once again updated its Android Platform Distribution numbers for the recently ended month of October. Sadly, the numbers are not as impressive as Google would like them to be with Android 2.3 Gingerbread, which was released back in late-2010, still capturing 54.2% of the market share.

Android 4.0 and Android 4.1.1 Jelly Bean still occupy a relatively low 28.5% of the market share. The Jelly Bean numbers in itself is pretty low at only 2.7%, and has increased by less than 1% compared to the last time Google updated its platform distribution chart.

With the release of the Nexus 4 and Android 4.2, the Android update scenario is going to become worse. However, with the One X Jelly Bean update rolling out and the Galaxy S3 update being rolled out to more countries, Android 4.x adoption rate should see a nice boost the next time the chart is updated.
