Android Distribution May 2014
The Android distribution figures for May, taken seven days leading up to June 4th have been released and if you own an Android tablet running Honeycomb (Android 3.x) you can now consider yourself a statistical anomaly.

The removal of Honeycomb is a big step, but Froyo continues to maintain a presence in the Android landscape with 0.8% of devices running the aging version of the OS. Gingerbread has finally dropped below 15% market share.

The big news is that we can now say that 84.3% of devices are running one of the six iterations of Android 4.x (4.03-4.4). Something Mr Cook should do well to remember when he includes the nine iterations of iOS between 7.0 and 7.1.1 as ‘up to date’ next time.

The number comparisons to last month are here, so take a look and comment as you will:

Android VersionAprilMay
Android 2.2 (Froyo)1.0%0.8%
Android 2.3.3 – 2.3.7 (Gingerbread)16.2%14.9%
Android 4.0.3 – 4.0.4 (Ice Cream Sandwich)13.4%12.3%
Android 4.1.x (JellyBean)33.5%29.0%
Android 4.2.x (JellyBean)18.8%19.1%
Android 4.3 (JellyBean)8.5%10.3%
Android 4.4 (KitKat)8.5%13.6%

Dan is a die-hard Android fan. Some might even call him a lunatic. He's been an Android user since Android was a thing, and if there's a phone that's run Android, chances are he owns it (his Nexus collection is second-to-none) or has used it.

Dan's dedication to Ausdroid is without question, and he has represented us at some of the biggest international events in our industry including Google I/O, Mobile World Congress, CES and IFA.
