The number of devices using jelly bean are increasing rapidly and expect to increase the presence to 45% in August.
History of Android OS has been fascinating and to see the growth of Android OS from donut to jelly bean. So if you are still using the donut or even éclair or froyo then you are one of the 10 people having the android OS out of 1 million so this is the time to turn it off.
The reason behind the growth of jelly bean is that, all new Smartphone’s comes up with the latest android OS and that has helped jelly bean to increase its presence on android mobile devices.
If you are wondering how many devices are still using Gingerbread, then the numbers are surprising (even a slight decrease) as every 1 out of 3 device still uses Gingerbread as the OS.
