Jelly Bean claims 59.1 percent of Android device share as KitKat inches forward

Android version share in January 2014

Google has released its first Android device share data for 2014, and it’s now clear that many users are flocking to a newer OS version… just not the latest version. While the shiny new KitKat release did climb to 1.4 percent of active devices in January, Jelly Bean was the real winner — the older software jumped from 54.5 percent in December to 59.1 percent this month. There’s no real mystery as to what happened, though. KitKat remains limited to mostly Google hardware, whether it’s the Nexus line or Motorola phones; we haven’t quite reached that point where large numbers of third-party devices either get KitKat upgrades or ship with the revision pre-installed. That surge may come soon, however, and the team in Mountain View can at least take comfort in knowing that over 60 percent of Android’s active customer base is reasonably up to speed.
