KitKat & Jelly Bean on the increase in this month’s Android distribution numbers
Google has just updated its Android Distribution numbers on its Developers site to reflect the 7-day period ended March 3rd. The data shows growth for both KitKat and Jelly Bean, with Android 4.4 KitKat jumping up from 1.8% in February to 2.5% this month and all versions of Jelly Bean getting a slight bump as well (a combined 62% up from 60.7% last month). Increases come at the expense of drops in distribution numbers for most older versions of Android in addition to new KitKat and Jelly Bean devices hitting the market.
