Jelly Bean now running on more than 50% of Android devices

November Marketshare

Google has published the Android distribution chart from October revealing terrific overall progress. Compared to last month’s figures, Jelly Bean has seen a decent increase bringing its total tally to 52.1%. This includes all Android versions after Android 4.1 including the recently launched Android 4.3 OS which only has 2.3% of marketshare. Google will expect to have more marketshare from Android 4.4 KitKat as it launches this month with the Nexus 5.

Although the numbers probably won’t skyrocket, given the sort of demand there is for the Nexus 5 after its quick fire sellout yesterday, we should see a good deal of marketshare for Android 4.4 KitKat. Honeycomb is still sticking in there with 0.1% of marketshare while Android 2.3 Gingerbread has shrunk down to 26.3%. Google will be glad to have most of Android users running on Jelly Bean, although the ghosts of fragmentation still haunt the platform. According to initial reports, Google will bring Android 4.4 to relatively low end hardware as well, which should partially solve the fragmentation problem, but it’s still far from over.
