Things move fast around here, and just because OEM’s can’t keep up with the latest versions of Android, this shouldn’t be taken as a hit against Google. Take Ice Cream Sandwich for example. It’s been about 8 months since Android 4.0 debuted, and it’s only today were finally officially seeing the Android distribution chart updated, showing us the new number of Android devices officially on Ice Cream Sandwich (Android 4.0, 4.02, 4.03). That number? 10.9%
So what does this mean? A couple things — OEM’s still take forever to update their software, people are still using ancient hardware with cupcake on it, and the Galaxy Nexus doesn’t seem to be selling enough units to harm Apple financially after all. Things may start to get more interesting in August with the Galaxy S III released in the US recently, and the Nexus 7 coming this July.
