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.

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!
