    Ice Cream Sandwich and Gingerbread Updates Grow Slightly in February


    If you listen to some of the executives at Microsoft spout off, apparently Android never updates their products. That's pretty funny because reality just doesn't jive with that particular fantasy. According to Google's latest statistics, adoption of Ice Cream Sandwich and Gingerbread are both up slightly in February. Furthermore, if you look at the chart, there are far more devices running some version of Gingerbread than any of the other Android OS versions. Here's a full breakdown that pretty much flies in the face of Microsoft's ridiculous statements:
    • Ice Cream Sandwich (Android 4.x): Up a little more than half a percentage point to 1.6 percent. That encompasses Android 4.0 through Android 4.0.3.
    • Honeycomb (Android 3.x): Dropped 0.1 percent to 3.3 percent total. That change should be due to the Motorola Xoom and ASUS Transformer and Transformer Prime getting their ICS updates.
    • Gingerbread (Android 2.3): Saw some decent growth, actually, from 58.6 percent in February to 62 percent today.
    • Froyo (Android 2.2): Falls a couple of percentage points to 25.3 percent.
    • Eclair (Android 2.1): Fell a percentage point to 6.6 percent.
    • Donut (Android 1.6) and Cupcake (Android 1.5): Combine for 1.2 percent of active devices. Who's still using these?
    While it is true that there are still quite a few folks using Froyo, and even some using really old Android versions, I bet if you compared adoption rates to Microsoft's various operating systems of old, you will find that things skew even worse for them. The reality is that Android is such a solid and stable OS, it rarely needs patching, unlike Microsoft's stuff that needs security updates every week.
