The latest report from Android Developers is out, and, lo and behold, Android is still a very fragmented platform.

Android 2.3 or Gingerbread is present on 47.6% of devices down from 55.8% in October 2012 but still very dominant. Android 4.0 or Ice Cream Sandwich is powering 29.1% of devices, and the latest and greatest Android, 4.1/4.2 or Jelly Bean now has a 10.2% share.

Unfortunately for developers who have to keep all these versions in mind, even the ancient Android 2.2. or Froyo is still very alive and present on 9% of devices, while Android 2.1 Eclair powers 2.4% of all Android devices.
