Android outs current distribution numbers
The Android distribution numbers for a period of 14 days which ends on March 4 are out with no big surprises. The table is based on the number of Android devices that have accessed Google Play within the 14-day period. The numbers continue the trends from the previous few months, with Jelly Bean gaining ground on ICS and Gingerbread.
Even if the now outdated Gingerbread has dropped from 45.6% to 44.2%, it still remains the most popular Android version globally, and this doesn’t look too well for Android OEMs and their updates since Gingerbread is now more than two years old.
The ICS has dropped by only 0.4 %, but it still holds almost twice as big a market share than the two Jelly Bean releases together. The good news for Android is that the Jelly Bean user base is up by 3 % points as compared to the previous month, and the latest version of the platform is also starting to quickly gain traction now.
However, with Android Key Lime Pie successor on its way for this summer, it remains to be seen if Jelly Bean will become the most widely-spread Android release before the upcoming version is released.
