A new year, a new bunch of numbers, and as we saw last month there’s still no sign of Lollipop, despite being released for 2 months now. The data they’ve released has been collected during the 7 days leading up to January 5th, so how does it look?
Well, FroYo continues to decline, dropping 0.1% from last month, Gingerbread (the OS version that will never die) has dropped a pretty big 1.3%, while Ice Cream Sandwich dropped almost as much at 1.1%, down to 6.7%. Jelly Bean iterations saw decline across the 4.1 to 4.3 versions. KitKat has gained share, making up almost 40% of devices accessing Google Play but there’s still no sign of the latest entrant to hit the market.
For your convenience, here’s the comparison from last time.
|Android 2.2 (Froyo)||0.5%||0.4%|
|Android 2.3.3 – 2.3.7 (Gingerbread)||9.1%||7.8%|
|Android 4.0.3 – 4.0.4 (Ice Cream Sandwich)||7.8%||6.7%|
|Android 4.1.x (JellyBean)||21.3%||19.2%|
|Android 4.2.x (JellyBean)||20.4%||20.3%|
|Android 4.3 (JellyBean)||7.0%||6.5%|
|Android 4.4 (KitKat)||33.9%||39.1%|
