Google just released its latest Android install base figures. The company revealed that 54.2 percent of all Android devices are still running Gingerbread, which is now four generations old. 1.8 percent of all Android devices run Honeycomb, 25.8 percent run Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich and just 2.7 percent run Android 4.1 Jelly Bean (both figures are up slightly from last month). The company didn’t say how many people run Android 4.2 Jelly Bean, the newest iteration of the operating system, but we suspect the figure is incredibly low since the devices aren’t available to the public yet.
It seems silly that a majority of Android devices are still on Gingerbread, but 12 percent are still running Android 2.2 Froyo, 3.1 percent are running Android 2.1 Eclair, 0.3 percent are running 1.6 Donut and just 0.1 percent are running Android 1.5 Cupcake.
Google collected its data during a fourteen day period ending on Nov. 1.
