Android 4.4 Explodes Onto... 1.1 Per Cent of Android Devices

By Gary Cutlack on at

The latest set of Android user version data shows that Google and its hardware buddies still haven't got it together when it comes to rolling out the newest versions of its code, with just 1.1 per cent of all Android users on the latest KitKat software a month after it first appeared on the Nexus 5.

The stats, which count connections to Google's Play online store, do at least show that the majority of Android users are now on the modern Jelly Bean line, with 54.5 per cent of all users now running something at version 4.1 of Android or higher. How we pity those 25 per cent still stuck on 2.2 and 2.3, though.

Looking at it from Google's angle, though, it must mean that the Nexus 5 has been a roaring success. So that's quite nice. If you've got a Nexus 5. [Android Developers]
