According to the most recent statistics released publicly by Internet search giant Google, only about 10.9 percent of the devices running the company's increasingly popular Android mobile operating system have been updated to the software's latest version - Android 4.0 `Ice Cream Sandwich.'
The latest data from Google has been disclosed in a developer information page, which gives a comprehensive breakdown - via Business Insider - on devices from which the Google Play app store was accessed during a two-week period that ended on July 2, 2012.
Going by the figures released by Google, barely 10.9 percent of Android-device users who accessed Google Play during the mentioned period used some form of the latest Android 4.0 "Ice Cream Sandwich" version of the OS.
The statistics imply that even though the newest version has been available for almost eight months now, it has come aboard only a relatively small number of Android-based devices.
The figures also showed that the majority of the Android users still used some form of Android 2.3 `Gingerbread' version; with as many as 64 percent of the devices having accessed Google Play, in the two-week period, using that version of the Android software.
Furthermore, as per the Google data, the devices running the much older Android 2.2 `Froyo' version comprised nearly 17.3 percent of all devices which accessed Google Play during the mentioned two-week period.
