Latest Data has Google (GOOG) Android Jelly Bean with Quick Adaptation

February 5, 2013 3:57 PM EST
Google (Nasdaq: GOOG) updated its platform versions page today, giving out the latest information on which versions of Android are being used the most. Data is compiled based on the number of Android devices that have accessed Google Play within a 14-day period ending on the data collection date.

For the period ending on February 4, 2013, about 45.6 percent of devices are running Gingerbread, or Android version 2.3 - 2.3.7. Ice Cream Sandwich is at 29 percent, covering versions 4.0.3 through 4.0.4. Jelly Bean is third with 13.6 percent, covering version 4.1 and 4.2.

Donut, the earliest version recorded, is being run by about 0.2 percent of devices.

The numbers are going according to market data. With Samsung unloading millions upon millions of its Galaxy smartphones, particularly the S III, and carriers moving to update devices with the latest version of Android, the rapid adaptation of Jelly Bean is evident.

Also, of note, should be Honeycomb. The Android version was created for Android tablets and only 1.3 percent of tracked data is from the OS.

Shares of Google are up about 1 percent into the close Tuesday.
