Android 4.1 and 4.2 Jelly Bean Gaining Market Share


Google's latest version of Android, Jelly Bean, has increased its market share from 2.7 percent to 10 percent.

Jelly Bean, which constitutes Android 4.1 and 4.2, is now installed on 10 percent of devices powered by Google's platform during the weeks ending January 3.

Comparatively, the first two weeks of December saw Jelly Bean, which was released back in July, installed on 6.7 percent of all devices. Preceding that was Jelly Bean accounting for a 2.7 percent share of the market during October.

Popular devices including the Samsung Galaxy S3, HTC One X and Google's Nexus brand -- Nexus 7 and Nexus 10 tablets, as well as the Galaxy Nexus and Nexus 4 smartphones -- have all either launched with Jelly Bean or have been upgraded to the latest version of the OS.

Released during 2010, Gingerbread saw its share decrease below 50 percent to 47.6. That figure stood at 54.2 percent during October, while a quarter of all Android-powered devices were powered by Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich in the same month, which has since increased to 29.1 percent.

    I guess this makes Gingerbread the "Windows XP" of the Android world?
