While 13.6% isn't that much of the market considering how many Android devices are out there, it is a significant improvement over the 8.5% that was recorded a month ago. KitKat did slip past Ice Cream Sandwich, which held 12.3% of the Android market.


The most popular version of Android is still Jelly Bean with 58.4% of all devices. Second place in the Android market goes to Gingerbread with 14.9% of all devices using that flavor. As of now there are five different versions of Android still in use. Fragmentation is still a big issue in the Android world.
