    Why you shouldn't freak out if you don't have ICS yet...

    ICS reaches 2.9 percent of active Android devices, 63.7 percent still on Gingerbread

    As we check back in on
    Android's Platform Versions dashboard


    for the first time since
    January


    , we can finally see notable growth in the percentage of devices running some flavor of Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich, up for 0.6 percent then to 2.9 percent. That's likely fueled by the release of updates for the Samsung
    Galaxy S II


    and
    HTC Sensation


    family of devices, and is a sharp uptick from last month when it registered on 1.6 percent. Gingerbread (2.3) still reigns supreme, running 63.7 percent of the Android hardware that accessed the Play market in the last two weeks, but its growth seems to finally be slowing.
    Last year at this time


    that position was filled by Android 2.2, with 2.3 on just one percent of the hardware and Android 3.0 barely registering at all, a point which highlights the long cycle of upgrades. Call it fragmentation or flexibility, app developers can use these stats to plan their releases going forward, although it may be a little while still before the majority of the crowd can access any Ice Cream Sandwich-specific features.

    Engadget






    So it looks like only a few people really use ICS at this point even. Don't fret.

    I wanted Ice Cream Sandwich last week.

    Grocery store next to my store. Problem solved. Now I have ICS in my store.

    Interface is a little different. I'm guessing an ICS style launcher could change most of that. In the newer phones, they don't have four buttons. They only have 3. I don't like that the menu button was taken away. Most of those options can be accessed via the new overflow key which seems to change location based on application. Galaxy Nexus doesn't have a USB Mass Storage mode which sucks in my opinion. Having it as an MTP device is something that reminds me of old Windows Phones. The ICS RAZR however does have USB Mass Storage enabled.

    I haven't been on ICS too long. Maybe someone else can shed some light. To be more specific, I've had it two days.

    Getting rid of the menu key is really stupid..
