We love doing these number posts. Really. It is always fascinating playing the percentages game and how much percentage which version of the OS is being used. Android has been notoriously slow when it has come to pushing updates to all the devices given the lack of vertical integration and compatibility issues with OEM Skins. However, the latest from Android or the KitKat update is barely a month or so old and already forms around 1.4% of all the activated Android devices out there.
This figure is all the more surprising because apart from the Nexus devices and Moto X and Moto G, none of the devices have officially received the update to Kitkat. Plenty of devices have received the support from CM 11 taking their devices to KitKat and it just goes to show how many people are keen to get on the boat of the latest and greatest from Android.
The numbers as released by Android developers community show Kitkat rise from 1.1 to about 1.4 percent in just a month while the most popular Android version remains Android JellyBean 4.1 at 35.9%. It is worth noting that Android Gingerbread still makes up a massive 21.2% of the devices running on Android. However, things are definitely looking a lot better than they were say an year or so ago. May the progress continue.
