KitKat’s proportion of Android devices rises up to 5.3%

After many months of uncertainty, Android 4.4 KitKat is now becoming more and more popular. Google affirms that around 5.3% of Android users are using the newer version of the OS, known as KitKat. From previous estimates it is assumed that the usage of Android 4.4 KitKat has doubled, from the earlier 2.5 last month.

Regarding the jump there has not yet been any official reason however it is expected that the series of KitKat upgrades as a result of Samsung, HTC and LG may have brought this about.

Many of the older Android versions have lost their proportion of users. Similarly it may be expected that KitKat takes over JellyBean in regards with being the most popular Android operating system. However this may seem farfetched now; after all it is only after the new HTC One and Galaxy S5 have been released that Android 4.4 KitKat will realize an even higher jump.

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
