New developer figures show Jelly Bean nearing 50% adoption


Android Jelly Bean versions 4.1 and 4.2 (and while it’s not listed in the report, we assume 4.3) is now running on roughly 45% of activated devices, according to the latest Google Developer Dashboard update from Google. Gingerbread comes in second with 30.7%, with Ice Cream Sandwich boasts a 21.7% user base.

Another bit of information noted in the report is that devices running below Android 2.2 are no longer included in the stats, as these devices aren’t capable of running the latest version of the Google Play Store app. The Play Store app is how Google monitors a myriad of data concerning Android devices, included installed operating system and screen size.

It’s nice to see the majority of Android users have access to the features we’ve come to know and love in Jelly Bean. Hopefully this trend of devices being updated in a somewhat quick timeframe will continue on into the KitKat era.

Samsung thinks your child deserves a tablet too, Galaxy Tab 3 Kids shows up in Korean back-to-school marketing brochure

Samsung_Galaxy_Tab_3_Kids_Korean_Brochure_01

I’m actually shocked Samsung hasn’t already launched a tablet for kids. Samsung has always offered a diverse amount of products to satisfy everyone. Unfortunately, they forgot about the kids, but Samsung is about to redeem themselves with the Galaxy Tab 3 Kids tablet.

It has an 8.5-inch WSVGA (1,024 x 600) display, a 1.2GHz dual-core CPU, 1GB of RAM, 8GB of storage, a microSD slot for storage expansion, 4,000mAh battery, and Android Jelly Bean (not sure which version). It bares the model number of SM-T2105 and it showed up in a Korean back-to-school brochure.  One more image after the break.
