Google has once again updated the Android platform distribution numbers. The numbers, released right on schedule today, show Gingerbread still leading the pack at 56% of devices (down from 57.5% last month), with Jelly Bean crawling up the ladder to 1.8%, up from 1.2% last time.


The two most important stat changes from last month, Gingerbread and Jelly Bean, are somewhat disappointing – both shifting at a lower rate than last cycle, but promised updates and leaked devices we may or may not see in the near future will likely help those numbers along.

Other versions, meanwhile, are moving as expected. Cupcake is down to 0.1% from 0.2%, Donut has stayed put at 0.4%, Éclair is down to 3.4% from 3.7%, and Froyo is down slightly from 14% to 12.9%. Honeycomb has slipped from 2.1% to 1.9%, and finally Ice Cream Sandwich is up from 20.8% to an encouraging 23.7%.

Of course, with the new distribution numbers comes a new historical distribution chart, showing the steady growth (or decline) of each iteration of Android old to new, top to bottom.
