It has been almost 7 months since the launch of Ice Cream Sandwich worldwide. Earlier, we were worried about the adoption rate of Android 4.0 across the world, which was just 1 percent till February of this year. But now, it has almost five times prior to February of this year. The penetration of ICS in between March and mid of April this year was just 2.9% across the world, but it has now reached to 4.9%, according to May 1 post.

Previously, I have elaborated how Android Gingerbread version was dominating over Android’s total market share until February. However, Gingerbread has sustained its supremacy and dominating over 63.9% Android market share. The latest report has also revealed that Honeycomb has grabbed 3.3% of total Android market share, down 0.1% compare to February of this year.

Previously, I have reported that the performance of Android 4.0 in Q4 was somewhat better than in Q3 last year. Prior to February 1 of this year, Gingerbread succeeded to manage 58.65% of total Android market share, while Android 4.0 version had just 1% of penetration.

In the beginning of March this year, Verizon released a list of upcoming Android ICS powered devices including HTC Thunderbolt, HTC Rhyme, HTC Rezound, Motorola XOOM, DROID BIONIC, DROID RAZR, DROID 4, DROID XYBOARD 8.2, DROID XYBOARD 10.1, Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1, Samsung Galaxy Tab 7.1, LG Spectrum and more.

Anyway, there is a big lineup of Android 4.0 devices in the market, which are yet to come this year. It’s well known that ICS version of Android is compatible with both Smartphone and Tablets and that’s why manufacturers are more preferring to this version than Honeycomb.
