Looks like Android fans continue to multiply as reports are boasting that just over 42 million Android devices were activated through the month of December 2011. What is more interesting is that 0.6% of the active Android handsets are using Ice Cream Sandwich, which signals a moderately strong sales start for the Galaxy Nexus, the only superphone to currently come with Android Ice Cream Sandwich pre-installed as the operating system.
Google hopes to see Ice Cream Sandwich adoption skyrocket in 2012, with major smartphone manufacturers including Samsung and Motorola working to launch updates to popular phones such as the Galaxy S II and the Droid RAZR by the end of Q1 2012. Ice Cream Sandwich will also be the version of Android installed on tablets going forward, replacing Honeycomb. This too will help the number of Ice Cream Sandwich adopters, though Android-based tablets have not been the popular item Google was hoping for thus far.
