Android Rules Smartphones, But Which Version?

Nerval's Lobster writes "Google Android’s dominance of the smartphone space has been reinforced by a new IDC study that places its market-share at 68.3 percent, well ahead of iOS at 18.8 percent. But which version of Android is most preferred by users? A new set of graphs on the Android Developers Website offers the answer to that question: “Gingerbread,” or Android versions 2.3 through 2.3.7, dominates with 50.8 percent of the Android pie. “Ice Cream Sandwich,” or versions 4.0.3 through 4.0.4, is second with 27.5 percent, with the latest “Jelly Bean” build at 6.7 percent. As demonstrated by that graph on the Android Developers Website, there are a lot of devices running a lot of different versions of Android out there in the ecosystem, all with different capabilities. In turn, that could make it difficult for Google to deliver “the latest and greatest” to any customer that wants it, and potentially irritates those customers who buy a smartphone (particularly a high-end one) expecting regular upgrades."
