The previous Android OS that took up the most market share was Android 2.3 Gingerbread, which now has 30.7% of Android users. Android 1.6 and 2.1 have been dropped from active tracking as they don't work with the latest version of the Google Play Store, which is where Google scoops up the distribution numbers from.

 

Jelly Bean saw increases of 4.6% total between Android 4.1 and 4.2, but all other versions of Android saw drops, showing the dominance of the best version of Android finally taking the lead. We will see more of this as Samsung has just announced some future top-selling devices, such as the Galaxy Note III and the upcoming Galaxy S5.
