Android Jelly Bean crosses 60 percent mark

Posted on Wednesday, Feb 05 2014 @ 12:07 CET by Thomas De Maesschalck
The latest Android dashboard update reveals that the Jelly Bean (Android 4.1.x to 4.3) class of Android devices now has a userbase of 60.9 percent, a 1.8 percent growth over the previous month. Android 4.1.x is the most dominant version of Android with a userbase of 35.5 percent, followed by the old Android 2.3.x "Gingerbread" devices with a distribution of 20.0 percent.
Android KitKat, meanwhile, moved forward at a snail’s pace, growing by only 0.4 percent. While that should change in the coming weeks as 2013 flagships continue to get updated to the chocolate-themed version and new devices launch with KitKat out of the box, it will still be a considerable while before the latest version of the OS starts posting any noticeable growth. Gingerbread and Ice Cream Sandwich continued to cede market share, going down by 1.2 and 0.7 percent respectively.
