What are types of android, how do they differ from each other?

Please explain in detail....

There is no way this could be answered in this small box. Android is an open source operating system, so not only is there the MANY retail and OEM versions of Android, but there are literally hundreds of aftermarket developer versions of it. The primary differences are that some are based on a newer kernel than others(which opens up features unavailable on previous versions), and the GUI differs.
This is also the primary downfall of the Android operating system. Just like Linux, which has never been popular for home computing, Android is built on a Unix core, and just like linux, it suffers from what is called fragmentation. There are simply too many different versions of it for developers to be able to create their apps to work equally well across all Android devices.

They are the different OS versions for the retail version of Android.
Ice Cream Sandwich is Android 4.0, and Jelly Bean is version 4.1.
