That’s right, Ice Cream Sandwich now occupies 1% of Android devices according to this month’s Android Platform Distribution chart.

He does note that Gingerbread is on 58.6% of Android devices. For those not familiar with the ridiculous naming system in Android, Gingerbread is versions 2.3-2.3.7 and Ice Cream Sandwich (the newest) is version 4.0-4.0.3.

In other words it is big news that software that is two versions old is now on the majority of devices and that three months in 1% of devices are using the latest version of Android.

What a mess.

I’d be pissed if I bought a new Android phone on a two year contract and was still stuck on Gingerbread.
