Android Distribution Chart April 2013

The days just keep flying by. Last month, Google flipped the script, changing the way they displayed Android’s distribution numbers. Today, they’ve been updated for the month of April, letting us keep an eye on various Android firmwares from active devices (those who’ve pinged the Google Play Store within the last 2 weeks).

Jelly Bean makes a steady climb to 28.4% (from 25% last month) snatching away users from Ice Cream Sandwich which saw a drop to 27.5% (down from last month’s 29.3%). Gingerbread is still hanging strong at 38.5%, only a slight drop from last month’s 39.8%. With Key Lime Pie expected to launch with the next Nexus device at the end of this year, Android OEM’s still have some time to push out a few more updates by then.
