The adoption rate of the Androids has gone up and it is up to 6.7 percents as stated in the Android Developers reports. In the beginning of the year, the adoption rate being 0.4 percent only the recent trends during the first week of June seems to indicate positive trend. As Gingerbread holds the major part of the Android distribution, the ICS adoption is quite slower as compared to Gingerbread but again this was not the expectation in the beginning. The basic fact behind the delay is the OEMs as the new OS has to be tested properly before they are released publicly.
The manufacturers find it difficult to manage the supply of various versions of the same phone in different countries through different carriers thus it becomes difficult for the manufacturers to manage on a large scale. In case of iPhones, only one phone and only one version is available to the users across the globe. The number of ICS handsets is no where closer to any other rivals. There is also a rumor in the market that Google is coming out with Android 5.0 Jelly Bean by the end of June. There is no harm in hoping but the scenarios for the Android ICS is not going to change as per the market analysts.
