It’s been about 7 months since Google officially unveiled Ice Cream Sandwich to the world and it’s only now, we’re finally beginning to see Android 4.0 gain some traction in market share. It’s interesting because Android 4.0’s distribution numbers  have almost doubled from March to mid-April’s paltry 2.9%, with results posted today showing ICS now running on 4.9% of Android devices currently in the wild. And even though those numbers may sound like small cakes to you, keep in mind that was over the course of 1 month. It will be interesting to see how big and fast this number will grow in the coming months as more devices are (slowly) updated to ICS and more devices are launching with the latest OS. What do you guys think? Are these results promising? Or embarrassing?
