Ice Cream Sandwich now loaded on .6% of Android devices


Ice Cream Sandwich is the best version of Android yet, with features that can bring what the platform was falling behind in back up to speed with the rest of the competition. 

However, a new graph directly from Android's developer website states that only .6% of Android users are being able to utilize those features. To put that in perspective, the same amount of Android phones are still running 1.5.

The state of Android's install base isn't as bad as it once was, though; just under 55% of Android devices are, in fact, using the second-latest phone version of Android, which is 2.3.

In related news, it seems that the Galaxy Nexus (which is running Ice Cream Sandwich) has reached about 700,000 sales already. That falls in line with a few holiday numbers that Google had released, so hopefully that dismal .6% will become higher in a short amount of time if more customers keep following the same purchasing pattern.
