Android Distribution Numbers - November 2014
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 Version July/August September
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%
Android 4.1.x (JellyBean) 25.1% 22.8%
Android 4.2.x (JellyBean) 20.7% 20.8%
Android 4.3 (JellyBean) 8.0% 7.3%
Android 4.4 (KitKat) 24.5% 30.2%

Daniel Tyson   Ausdroid's Editor in Chief

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.

Interesting that of the JB flavours, 4.1.x is still the most popular.

I’ve got two devices running Lollipop so I’m sure there are more!
