Half of all active Android devices are currently running an Android Jelly Bean build. The vast majority of Android devices - 37.3 percent, to be exact - run Android 4.1 Jelly Bean. Android versions 4.2 and 4.3 Jelly Bean account for 12.5 and 2.3 percent respectively. That number will grow as more manufacturers and carriers work to bring their devices new features. The process may be slower for others as some manufacturers have pledged to focus on upgrading devices to the recently announced Android 4.4 KitKat.
In the Android device statistics released in September, Google removed the years-old Cupcake and Donut builds from its list in because they represented too small a portion to be pictured. This month, older versions of Android continue to fall, including versions 2.2 Froyo dropping to 1.7 percent, 2.3 Gingerbread dropping to 26.3 percent, 3.2 Honeycomb remaining stagnant at 0.1 percent, and 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich falling to 19.8 percent.source: Google
