Android Jelly Bean Dominates With Over 40% Market Share

Last month was a particularly good one for Android. After what seemed like forever, Android 4.x Jelly Bean finally overtook the market share that was enjoyed by Android 2.3 Gingerbread since long, to become the most popular version of the Android OS in the market. This month spells further good news as Android 4.1 Jelly Bean alone beats Android 2.3 Gingerbread market share, which means a majority of Android users are getting to use the latest features introduced by Google with Jelly Bean, which recently got its third iteration in the form of Android 4.3. The adoption rate of Android 4.2.2 has been far slower, and we don't expect that to change anytime soon. OEMs are opting to directly update their phones to the newer 4.3 Jelly Bean instead. We couldn't possibly complain about that now could we.
