Is it a cause for alarm that Google’s latest operating systems, the 4.1 Jelly Bean and the 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich, have been lagging behind the old 2.3 Gingerbread OS?
According to reports, the Gingerbread OS only feel by 2% from the previous month. This number still puts it on top of the most used Android OS. This figure also shows that devices running on 2.3 Gingerbread OS are still being used by half of Android users all over the world.
Google’s latest Jelly Bean went up by only 0.6%, while the 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich only gained 3%.
Interestingly enough, tech companies running on Google’s Android OS have been using the Ice cream Sandwich for their new smartphones and not the Jelly Bean. Though they have been slowly rolling out updates, many are still stuck with the 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich.
Do you want to know how bad it is for Jelly Bean? Even the Froyo, the Android 2.2 OS, is ahead of it with 12.9% of Android users that are still using it.
Is there something wrong with the 4.1 Jelly Bean OS or is it really because of the slow roll out of the upgrades that Jelly Bean is lagging behind?
