Fresh Android distribution figures out

Written by Nick Farrell



KitKat and Jelly Bean gain ground

Google has released details of its Android distribution numbers and Android 4.4 KitKat and Android 4.2.x Jelly Bean have gained ground.

Android 4.4 KitKat use grew by 2.5 per cent of the market up to 5.3 per cent. Android 4.2.x Jelly Bean grew from 17.1 per cent to 18.1 per cent, however the 4.1.x and 4.3 versions of Jelly Bean both experienced a near 1 per cent drop each. Jelly Bean maintained the lead with an overall 61.4 per cent share of the Android market, down only 0.4 percent from the month previous.

Froyo dropped a fraction of a percentage while Gingerbread continues its downward trend, seeing a 1.3 per cent drop from last month. Soon I will be the only one using it. (We'll get you a new iPhone 5C. Ed)

It is expected that Kitkat will take off this month with flagship devices were announced in February, with the Samsung Galaxy S5, HTC One (M8) and Sony Xperia Z2 hitting the shops.
