Google is a little late this month with distribution figures for Android, but there’s good news, with KitKat now showing as being installed on one-fifth of all Android devices out there.
Jelly Bean for the most part declined in usage (except Android 4.2), but Gingerbread gained a little of its declining market share back, clawing back 0.1% of the user base out there. Froyo continues on at 0.7%. Public Service Announcement: We have Christmas, Fathers Day, and any number of birthdays coming up, if you know someone with a phone running something less than Android 4.x Upgrade them PLEASE!
The comparsions to last month for your consideration :
|Android 2.2 (Froyo)||0.7%||0.7%|
|Android 2.3.3 – 2.3.7 (Gingerbread)||13.5%||13.6%|
|Android 4.0.3 – 4.0.4 (Ice Cream Sandwich)||11.4%||10.6%|
|Android 4.1.x (JellyBean)||27.8%||26.5%|
|Android 4.2.x (JellyBean)||19.7%||19.8%|
|Android 4.3 (JellyBean)||9.0%||7.9%|
|Android 4.4 (KitKat)||17.9%||20.9%|

Up to 29% of Android devices supporting Android Wear! (Yes, noting that most who would be looking at Android Wear would have new phones anyway)
