Google has updated its Android platform distribution figures, which show Gingerbread continues to leads the pack at 56 percent of devices, though it is down from 57.5 percent last month. Android v4.1 Jelly Bean, which made its debut a couple of months ago, has crawled up to 1.8 percent, higher from 1.2 percent last month. The platform is likely to see rapid growth in near future as major manufacturers such as HTC and Samsung planning to launch Jelly Bean-based smartphones / tablets in next couple of months.

But there's not good news for Android v4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich, as figures show its growth has slowed down after posting strong growth for couple of months. Its share has risen from 20.9 percent only to 23.7 percent. However, ICS is likely to grow in coming months with Sony, Motorola and other manufacturers finshing rolling out ICS updates for their previous gen devices. It is unlikely that the ICS will ever take the lead, as most of the manufacturers have shifted their attention towards the latest Jelly Bean for their new smartphones and tablets. Moreover, a lot of devices are still running the Gingerbread operating system.
