July Android platform numbers show KitKat gaining steam
posted by Michael H. / Jul 07, 2014, 5:19 PM
beginning of June, we saw that KitKat jumped an impressive 5.1% from 8.5% in May to 13.6%, and at the same time, all other major versions dropped. This month, KitKat is once again up, and now makes up 17.9% of the ecosystem. That's solid movement for an Android update. KitKat is up 12.6% since April, and shows no signs of slowing down, especially with Android L not coming for at least another two or three months. In terms of the other Android versions, everything is on the decline, as we said. Jelly Bean (Android 4.1-4.3) is now down to 55.5% from its peak of 62% back in March. Ice Cream Sandwich (Android 4.0) slipped a bit to 11.4%, and Gingerbread (Android 2.3) is down to 13.5%.At the
With most major manufacturers promising Android L updates to current flagships within three months of its release, we may not see KitKat rise to the levels of Jelly Bean or Gingerbread, which both peaked at over 60% of the ecosystem. But, it should still be interesting to see how high KitKat can get.

Way to go Android. You are the best mobile platform, bar none. Now if you can hurry up with L or Lollipop. That would be great. Oh and while your at it Google, hurry up and get Glass released in other countries and I also want a project Ara unit. I feel like I should be on Google Santa's knees or something ;-)

Take mediateke support. Bcz most of 4.2.2 mobile is mediateke. If mediateke can support kitkat then 80 percent phone can update into kitkat

@Michael Heller I think the main reason that Kit kat gaining market share, and JB/ICS loosing market share is because all the new phone mostly kit kat. So, maybe the JB/ICS phone/user is only loosing small amount, but big as percentage.
