He has connected his Glass up to Google’s ADB software and analyzed the debug data to find out the operating system and hardware was powering the Google Glass.


As It can be seen here, in the ADB printout, Google Glass Explorer is running Android 4.0.4 Ice Cream Sandwich. CPU is OMAP 4430 – a dual-core from the same family of processor used in the Galaxy Nexus smartphone. The ADB printout returned that the system has 682MB of RAM, but most likely it is 1GB of RAM and the system is reserving some part of it.

You can see the details from Lee’s Google drive.

Android 4.x adoption is getting closer to 50% now, 2.3 still have the largest share

Android Developers Dashboard has reported the share of all devices running each version of Android as of February 4, 2013. These numbers are measured based on the number of users accessing Google Play within a 14 day period, which is a more or less a correct indication of devices being actively used.


It can be seen from above chart that,  Android 4.x and higher is nearing the 50-percent mark, at 42.6-percent currently. Gingerbread is still sitting at the top spot at 45.6-percent, but the point is nearing where device running Gingerbread will be overtaken by versions with the new design language.

As we can see in the graph, the share of Gingerbread devices is slowly but surely decreasing, making way for a notably quick Jelly Bean advancement.

Google’s I/O scheduled conference is on May 15-17. It would be a great debut place for the next version of Android. Who knows, maybe they will hand out upgraded Nexus 7’s running Key Lime Pie. Fingers crossed!
