Good news for Android users, the Jelly Bean Android OS has surpassed the number of mobile device using the Ice Cream Sandwich Android OS.

Around 28.4 percent of Android devices are using the latest versions of the mobile OS from Google. It was slightly ahead of the Ice Cream Sandwich or the Android 4.0, which accounted for 27.5 percent of all Android device users. The figures reflect users for the month of April.

However, the Gingerbread Android is still on top of the list with 38.5 percent despite falling by 1.7 percent.

The numbers were based on the users who visited the Google Play Store during a specific period of time. It shows a notable adoption of the Jelly Bean Android OS among mobile device users. The Jelly Bean Android OS was released by Google last July and it is gradually reducing its gap with the Gingerbread Android OS. The Gingerbread Android entered the market in December 2010 and it accounted for over 50 percent of Android users at the end of last year.

The increasing number of users of the latest Android OS can be attributed to the release of the Samsung Galaxy S3, which surpassed the 50 million unit level since it was released into the market last year.  With the upcoming release of the SamsungGalaxy S4, the Jelly Bean Android OS is expected to surpass the number of users of the Gingerbread Android OS soon.
