Breaking down the figures further, about 16.5 percent of Android devices are running Jelly Bean, while 28.6 percent have devices powered by ICS. About 1.2 percent are on Honeycomb, 44.2 are on Gingerbread. About 7.6 percent of Android devices are still running on Froyo. Check out the Android distribution in the graphical form below:
