The number of Android mobile phone owners taking advantage of the latest Jelly Bean platform continues to increase.
Version 4.1 is installed on 12.2 per cent of the Google operating system devices – this proportion has almost doubled across a two-month period.
Just 1.4 per cent have adopted the newest 4.2, because consumers can only utilise the "faster, smoother, more responsive" firmware on the LG Nexus 4 handset.
Many aspirant owners have experienced difficulty getting their hands on Google's latest hardware creation, as unanticipated demand depleted stock quickly.
There are rumours circulating that the next major upgrade, Key Lime Pie, is in the pipeline for release in the second quarter.
It could be unveiled at the Google I/O developer conference, which is scheduled to take place between May 15th and 17th.
Premium Android handsets released after the launch are likely to feature the software, while a few existing smartphone owners will be able to upgrade.
