Google's monthly Android distribution figures are out again, revealing a significant leap in uptake for the two latest iterations of the mobile OS. Ice Cream Sandwich is now running on 20.8 percent — that's up from 15.9 percent last month, and 10.9 percent the month before.
While the rise of Android 4.0 is clearly a good thing, Ice Cream Sandwich is no longer Google's latest and greatest; Android 4.1 Jelly Bean has a lowly 1.2 percent share of the Android market. Although that represents a tiny proportion of Android devices, the relative increase from last month's 0.8 percent share is huge. We expect both Ice Cream Sandwich and Jelly Bean to continue to rise as new devices and updates are released.
