It’s that time of the month when we take a look at the Android distribution numbers to see which operating system has seen a rise in adoption, and so on.
This month’s numbers provide a pretty decent picture as the share of the latest Android 4.4 KitKat has doubled compared to last month.
Last month, KitKat was running on almost 2.5 percent of the Android device, but this month, the number rose to 5.3 percent which is a good sign. This means OEMs are pushing out the Android 4.4 KitKat update for their devices, with more in the queue list. AS far as Jelly Bean is concerned, the adoption has fallen slightly compared to last month, however, devices running Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean saw slight increase while other Jelly Bean versions followed a downward trend.
The older versions have declined as well, which could mean that users are switching to latest devices. Gingerbread is down to 17.8 percent from 19 percent while Ice Cream Sandwich now resides at 14.3 percent.
OEMs have announced that more devices will be upgraded to the latest Android 4.4 KitKat update, but there’s no exact time frame defined, but we’re hoping it will happen for some devices out there in the market.
