Google seems back on track with releasing their distribution numbers now, it’s the 1st of the month in the US and boom, here they are.
The glaring omission from this list is the lack of stats on Lollipop. Despite hitting devices from the thirteenth of November there’s apparently not even enough devices running the latest version of Android to make a dent in the 7-Day period leading up to the 1st of December. Sad but true.
Moving on, KitKat is now on 1/3 of devices, while Jelly Bean has dropped below 50% market share. ICS continues its downward spiral, now on just 7.8% of devices while the once mighty Gingerbread continues its enxorable march into obsolesence dropping to just 9.1%. FroYo is still hanging in there, but will eventually become a statistical anomaly and be dropped, but until then, watch the 0.1% drop until it happens.
For your convenience, here’s the comparison from last time.
|Android 2.2 (Froyo)||0.6%||0.5%|
|Android 2.3.3 – 2.3.7 (Gingerbread)||9.8%||9.1%|
|Android 4.0.3 – 4.0.4 (Ice Cream Sandwich)||8.5%||7.8%|
|Android 4.1.x (JellyBean)||22.8%||21.3%|
|Android 4.2.x (JellyBean)||20.8%||20.4%|
|Android 4.3 (JellyBean)||7.3%||7.0%|
|Android 4.4 (KitKat)||30.2%||33.9%|
