Soon after Google announced the latest version of Android 4.4 KitKat, at the same time www.developer.android.com also published a report saying that the Android Jelly Bean had surpassed the 50% distribution mark among all android devices. In simple words, from all the Android devices available in the market so far, Jelly Bean devices itself accounts to more than 50%.
However, the numbers include the all the Jelly bean versions running devices from, 4.1, 4.2 and 4,3 as well. Specifically, Jelly Bean now is counted to occupy 52.1 per cent of total Android devices. While older platforms like Gingerbread stands at 26.3%, Ice Cream Sandwich at 19.8%, and Froyo is at 1.7 per cent.
The developers site also revealed that the most recent version of Jelly Bean, Android 4.3 is now present on 2.3 percent devices, compared to the 1.5 percent share it registered, last month. Android 4.2.x is now on 12.5 percent devices (vis a vis 10.6 percent, last month), while Android 4.1.x is now on 37.3 percent devices (its share was 36.5 percent previously).
Further, Google has just incorporated the devices in the stats that have access to Google Play so smartphones running older than Android 2.2 OS are not taken into account here.
