Android 4.4 KitKat may have just been announced, but the more delicious sounding Jelly Bean (Android 4.1, 4.2 and 4.3) on more than 50% of devices. Just three months ago, it was barely scratching at 40%.

Google has also unveiled that the total number of activated Android devices has finally surpassed one billion devices, quite the amazing milestone. Jelly Bean being on more than 50% of devices is a great thing, as it's finally bringing the Android OS fragmentation issues to an end, something that KitKat should really nail down.

 

Gingerbread is now on 26.3% of devices, Honeycomb barely exists with 0.1%, Ice Cream Sandwich is still sticking around with 19.8% of the Android OS share and Froyo is still hanging on with 1.7%.
