Jelly Bean now on more than half of active Android devices

November 2, 2013


We’ve got a new version of Android now available — and a new round of platform version numbers to go along with it. As you’d expect, there are no Android 4.4 KitKat numbers for the week leading into Nov. 1 — and remember that Android 4.4 being “available” as downloadable code is different than actually being on devices — so we’ll have to wait a little bit for it to show results.

But for now, Android 4.1-4.3 Jelly Bean is at 52.1 percent of all active devices. That’s up from 48.6 percent a month ago. Ice Cream Sandwich (Android 4.0.3-4.0.4) dropped a tad to 19.8 percent. The much-maligned Android 3.0 Honeycomb is at a mere 0.1 percent. Android 2.3.x Gingerbread is down slightly to 26.3 percent, and Android 2.2 Froyo is hanging on at 1.7 percent.

Those numbers are from devices that use the Google Play Store app, and so they don’t include things like the Amazon Kindle, to say nothing of the multitudes of other devices that don’t use Google services.

The big challenge will be to get those Gingerbread numbers lower. Eradication would be nice, but that’s not overly realistic.
