When Google announced Android 4.4 KitKat late last year, we were told that it would be the version that unifies Android across low and high-end devices, but a few months in and we are still waiting to see that happen. A new report from Android Developers is showing that KitKat holds just 1.8-percent of the Android market share, while Android Jelly Bean continues to grow its market share.
Android 4.1x, 4.2x, and 4.3 make up about 60-percent of the total Android market share, while 2.3.3-7 makes up 20-percent. Android ICS comes in second with 16.1-percent followed by KitKat at 1.8-percent. Froyo owns 1.3-percent and Android 3.2 Honeycomb only holds onto about 0.1-percent. With the major carriers just now beginning to update devices like the HTC one to 4.4, its only a matter of time until 4.4 becomes the dominate power house. I suspect that by the end of the summer 4.4 will be above 30-percent.
