The Android platform version distribution chart has received its monthly refresh, and the results are much the same as last month. Gingerbread still holds the lead, with Android 2.3 appearing on 58.6 percent of devices. That’s an increase from last month’s 55 percent. Froyo still comes in at second but its share continues to shring, now down to 27.8 percent from last month’s 30 percent. Honeycomb has never boasted a huge presence and still hovers around 3.4 percent, showing little movement since the last report. With the release of Ice Cream Sandwich, Android 3.0’s chance to flourish has likely ended. The latest version of Android is currently installed on 1 percent of devices, up 0.4 percent since last month. The growth isn’t drastic just yet, but expect Android 4.0’s grasp to steadily increase as manufacturers push updates and new handsets begin shipping with ICS.
