It's been two months since Android 4.0 (Ice Cream Sandwich) launched and the adoption rate isn't as fast as previous versions, at just 0.6 per cent.
The numbers, posted on Android's developer site, paint a pretty sad picture of adoption rates. The data was gathered during a 14-day survey of Android devices that had accessed the Android Market. 55.5-percent of the devices were running Gingerbread (2.3). The tablet OS, Honeycomb (3.0), only accounted for 3.3-percent of devices to access the site during the time period and Ice Cream Sandwich (4.0) posted 0.6-percent. Froyo, (2.2) which has been out for 20 months, is still chugging along at 30.4-percent.
Because it's up to OEMs to update the software for their devices and push it consumers, it could be a while before those Ice Cream Sandwich numbers start creeping up. [Android Developer via parislemon, 9to5 Google]
