Google Spills The Jellybeans

Google is happily announcing that Android Jellybean is now on more devices than the previous version, Ice Cream Sandwich - 28% vs 27%. However, there are still 38% of current devices using the two-year-old Gingerbread version of Android, perhaps highlighting the Android fragmentation situation - the elephant in the room.
While this sounds like good news for Google, it's worth noting that the firm's latest two Android releases have fallen under the Jelly Bean branding. It's rumoured that Google will launch Android 4.3 Jelly Bean at its I/O conference later this month too, as it seemingly tries to hide the extent of Android fragmentation.
