Close on the heels of the announcement of the latest Android 4.1 Jelly Bean, Google has released its latest distribution data of its operating system for the month of June. While Gingerbread continues to top the list, the Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich has surpassed 10 percent of share, for the first time. Previous month, ICS' share was 7.1 percent.
Google's distribution data shows adoption of ICS has grown to 10.9 percent, up from a 7.1 percent share registered previous month. The growth in ICS users has been attributed to the recently launched Samsung Galaxy S III and HTC One X smartphones.
