A new month, a new set of platform distribution numbers. It’s all good news as the rollout of Android 4.4 keeps increasing, with just a just over 4% increase in market share.
For the rest of the platforms the numbers are still decent. Froyo continues to drop, down another 0.1%, continuing its inexorable march towards obsolesence. Gingerbread too has dropped, at seemingly a faster rate shedding 1.4% of their market share in a month. Ice Cream Sandwich use also dropped, down to 11.4% of the overall pie. Jelly Bean too saw a decrease in usage, going from an overall 58.4% of the market down to 56.5% across its three version number(4.1-4.3) spread.
