Jelly Bean – which is Android 4.1 and 4.2 is up in the two weeks ending January 3, though it’s Android 4.1 that’s made most of the gains. (Have a look at the charts below)

Additionally, Gingerbread has dropped below the 50 percent mark for the first time in over a year, as Ice Cream Sandwich made gains to get close to 29.1-percent total share. Maybe this is how things should have always been.

Gingerbread, released back in 2010, isn’t going away anytime soon, though. Its numbers have finally dipped below 50 percent to 47.6, but the operating system continues to ship on less-expensive phones.

But, at any point, sales from the Samsung Galaxy S III, HTC One X, and more seem to be paying off.
