Jelly Bean overtakes Ice Cream Sandwich, but still trails moldy Gingerbread

Android Platform Version

Slowly but surely, Android 4.2 Jelly Bean is inching its way toward overtaking the two-and-a-half year old Gingerbread as the dominant platform version of Android. The latest numbers from the Android Developers website show that Jelly Bean now holds a 28.4% share of the Android device market, marking the first time it has had a larger share than Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich, which now has a sits at 27.5%. All that said, Jelly Bean still has a ways to go before it catches up with Android 2.3 Gingerbread, the operating system that was released all the way back in December 2010, which still clings to a 38.5% share of the Android market. In other words, it looks like Gingerbread will still be the most widely used version of Android as Google announces yet another new version of the platform, Android 5.0 Key Lime Pie, which may be coming at Google I/O later this month.
