Google recently released their monthly Android report that shows how different Android variants relate to each other in terms of popularity among consumers. This report is usually meant for developers to keep them informed on the most popular variants to guide them when developing apps.
The information was compiled between January 29 and February 4th this year. The report clearly indicated that Android 4.4.x Jelly bean was the most popular variant while Android 3.2 Honeycomb was the least popular. Surprisingly though is Android Gingerbread that is still going strong commanding 20% of the market share.
This report provides some really great insights and I for one am impressed seeing more penetration with Android 4.0 and above.
Android KitKat has not yet picked up and still used in 1.8% of all Android devices.
Below is a list showing the percentage number of Android devices that use a particular Android variant.
Android 2.2 Froyo 1.3%
Android 2.3.3 -2.3.7 Gingerbread 20.0%
Android 3.2 Honeycomb 0.1%
Android 4.0.3 -4.0.4 Ice Cream Sandwich 16.1%
Android 4.1.x Jelly Bean 35.5%
Android 4.2.x Jelly Bean 16.3%
Android 4.3 Jelly Bean 8.9%
