With the evidence mounting that Jelly Bean is about to be announced as the next version of Android, we decided to ask our readers what version of Android they are currently running. The results may surprise you a bit.
Out of nearly 2,000 participants, and we're sure a few bogus votes, Ice Cream Sandwich was the most used version of the operating system. This is a bit surprising considering the glacial pace that updates have been happening for devices. ICS garners 48.7% of the vote. Coming in second with 35.99% of the vote was Android 2.3, Gingerbread.
Android 3.0 Honeycomb, the version of the OS that was built specifically for tablets, came in with 2.14%, which wasn't too surprising as it had a fairly short life span. Froyo, also known as Android 2.2, came in with 6.79% of the vote, with all other versions but the original Beta garnering less than 1%. (Hence our feeling a few people cast not-so-true votes.)
In spite of ICS getting the most votes, the rollout was still extremely slow, with AT&T's Galaxy S II variant getting the update only this week. While we don't know if Jelly Bean will actually start updating this week or if it's just a pre-announcement, it will be quite some time before it makes it way to a lot of devices.
Thank you to everyone who voted, and now lets tune into the Google I/O 2012 Liveblog to see what we can expect from Jelly Bean!
