The results are in, as of June 1, Android 4.0 (aka Ice Cream Sandwich) now has 7.1% of the Android market. Two months ago, the OS had just 2.9%, so this is progress. But that’s 7% in 7 months. There’s no spin you can put on this: it’s pathetic.
The race continues to be on for Ice Cream Sandwich to get to 10% penetration before Android 5.0 (aka Jellybean) is announced, presumably at Google I/O at the end of the month. It’s not looking good.
65% of Android users are still using some variation of Android 2.3 — and that number is actually still growing.
Google will announce the next version of their OS before 10% of their users are on the last version. Think about how insane that is for a second.
