Adoption of the latest Android mobile operating system version increased by over two-thirds, jumping from 2.9 percent market share to 4.9 percent.

This is according to the Google version tracker, which reveals the market share of each version of Android.

The majority of Android devices are running Gingerbread 2.3.3, which has a market share of 64.4 percent.

Android Froyo 2.2 still has 20.9 percent of the market, despite being over two years old.

Android Ice Cream Sandwich is expected to show growth in 2012 following a host of new mobile phones – such as Samsung’s Galaxy S3, and HTC’s One X – which will ship with the latest operating system factory-installed.

Google is expected to unveil Jelly Bean, the next build of Android, in the third quarter of 2012.
