ICS Pushes Popularity Levels Among Android OSes

The tech-world was hungry when Ice Cream Sandwich 4.0, the latest Android OS was released. Even low-end phones competed to offer Android 4.0 in their hardware.

Apparently, Gingerbread 2.3.x had maintained its popularity among the Android running phones. However, the statistics now hints that ICS is on top gear to overcome Gingerbread’s popularity.

The Android 4.0 OS now accounts for a 7.1 percent share in Android smartphones and tablet installations. This is a large increase from the 2.9 percent user percentage, reported two months ago.

Many phone makers and service providers are pushing Android 4.0 update in their devices to match the peer competition.

The immediate popularity is a positive sign that people are receiving ICS pretty well than its predecessor Honeycomb.

Gingerbread continues its reign in the Android world with a whopping 65 percent presence. Though it lost some clients to the grueling ICS update wave, it has benefited from the updates from Froyo and the Éclair OS users.

However, Froyo retained the second position with 19.1 % users under their radar.

The first edition ICS 4.0.1 debuted in October last year, the OS was then revised three times to the most recent ICS 4.0.4 in March 29th 2012. Do you think ICS will succeed to be a next Gingerbread in Android population?
