It’s been almost two months since we saw the release of the Android Distribution numbers, but then releasing a major version of Android will certainly put things like this by the wayside for the time being.
Google has today released the latest numbers, which were gathered in the 7-days leading up to November 3rd and they’re looking pretty good. KitKat now runs on over 30% of devices, up from 24.5% last time we checked in. Jelly Bean is a mish-mash of results, with small gains for some sub-versions and losses in others. Ice-Cream Sandwich has seen a drop of over a full percent. Gingerbread has finally dropped under 10%. The comparison over the last results are below for your viewing pleasure.
|Android 2.2 (Froyo)||0.7%||0.6%|
|Android 2.3.3 – 2.3.7 (Gingerbread)||11.6%||9.8%|
|Android 4.0.3 – 4.0.4 (Ice Cream Sandwich)||9.6%||8.5%|
