Honeycomb gets the lowest market share and will soon be extinct
Only a month has passed by and Google has rolled out its statistics on the distribution of the different Android versions. And from what the results show, the Android kitkat seems to be doing quite well with gaining 3.2 points and managing to gain a market share of 8.5%. The three distributors for the Android Jelly bean have had different results as 4.1 dropped 0.9 points but still remained the most widely adopted version and managed to get a market share of 33.5%. 4.2 actually expanded its share by 0.7 points to 18.8%, while 4.3 dropped 0.4 points and is now tied with KitKat at 8.5%.
All those Android versions which had released before the jelly bean have somehow lost ground and the hardest fall was taken by the Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich which went down by 0.7 percent points and this was the least expected. Gingerbread on the other hand lost 1.6 points and Froyo dropped another 0.1 points. Honeycomb seems to have the lowest market share of 0.1% and it won’t be long before Google officially announces it as being extinct.
