Ice Cream Sandwich gets biggest gain, has grown from 1.6% adoption to 2.9% since March 5th

Google have posted up their latest Android version distribution numbers, for the 14-day period ending on April 2, 2012. The numbers are quite interesting for Android 4.x Ice Cream Sandwich, where we can see the adoption rate rise from March 5th's 1.6-percent to 2.9-percent, now.

ICS was at just 0.6-percent on January 4, and had only risen 0.4-percent by February, and only rose 1-percent in March. To compare against Apple, iOS has a 75-percent adoption rate, with the latest iOS 5.1 at 61-percent last week. Will this adoption rate continue over the coming months? Yes and no. Some handset makers are pushing updates over-the-air (OTA), and some are not. Most Android consumers probably aren't even fully aware of Ice Cream Sandwich, where people with Apple devices tend to get OTA updates or buy new Apple products every 1-2 years.

 

Google's Gingerbread OS is still powering through with its numbers, with a majority of Android-based devices sporting the OS with a very hefty 63.7-percent market share. You can see on the above picture Android 4.0.3 is peeking up toward the end, but still it doesn't even begin to compare with Android 2.3.3.
