It's time for the monthly platform version number report from the folks at big G, and we don't see any surprises. KitKat is still on the rise, climbing from 5.3-percent a month ago to 8.5-percent. Froyo drops down to 1-percent, and the general shift of later versions seeing more traffic and older versions seeing less continues. As more phones are released with current software, and popular older models are being updated, we expect things to continue just as they are.

Darn you 0.1 on Honeycomb....

pazzo02 says:

You can thank devices like the Logitech Revue and Sony Internet Player for that. They still work fine but apparently WILL NEVER BE UPDATED!

I'm not ashamed to admit that my old galaxy tab 10.1 is still on honeycomb. Granted I use a nexus 10 now, but the tab 10.1 still works pretty well for it's age.

Try leaving it off for a month and see if it's just you who's ruining the pie chart.

Atul Khatri says:

Yeah exactly !

RusticKey says:

Honeycomb is having the longest, smallest last stand in software history.

My device went through hell to send this message.

gregmcph says:

I know a Honeycomb owner. She owns a Xoom.

eahinrichsen says:

Wasn't the Xoom updated to 4.1?

Posted from one of an unnecessarily large collection of Nexus devices because I'm That Guy

TheDu9du says:

Xoom buyers don't know tech therefore they don't know about update.

What? Huh? Why?

I am, thoroughly, impressed by Gingerbread. Just... wow.

Posted through my Nexus 7!

TheDu9du says:

I'm not. I bet ice cream sandwich did before gingerbread.

sequoia462 says:

Android has improved so much since Gingerbread and devices are getting better to support it.

I wish KitKat was higher.. Currently trying to port an app from iOS where printing and PDF creation is a core feature. Trivial on KitKat.. Nightmare on anything else.

I'm sure the KitKat numbers will take off now that the final of the big 4 US carriers started rolling out KitKat for the Galaxy S4's. Also saw that the S3's were getting updated to KitKat. The month of May should bring a nice boost.

jlczl says:

Glad to contribute to the 0.1 Honeycomb with my (now my father in law's) HTC Flyer. :-)

My s3 is struck on jelly bean 4.3
Waiting for kitkat ......

Posted via Android Central App

I think they won't give the S3 a KitKat. :)

NoYankees44 says:

NoNexus says:

I have no idea why sites like Android Central don't give us Note 3 Verizon customers more of a voice, and help us let Verizon know how sick and tired we are of the BS wait times for updates? I had the s3 and that was a disaster. .......All that time waiting and the update was still screwed up! There's been a leaked build already for the Note 3 on Verizon so they can't claim they haven't gotten it yet! Really hoping T-mobile puts tower/service in the Dakota's soon cause I'd leave Verizon in a heartbeat! Fed up with Verizon and there non-existant customer service, their high prices, and their lack of speedy updates!
Sorry for the rant......just have had enough of Verizon!!!!!!

NoNexus says:

What would AC do? That is a serious question. You can rant in the forums, you can rant in the Verizon forums, you can send emails. Jerry, Phil and Alex cannot do much more than to provide a place to be heard.

Dude, its a s/w update. Is your phone broken? Is it not working? My brother has a Note 3 & his phone is FINE on VZW. Jesus. You'd think KitKat is this giant upgrade. You, on 4.3 already have a 1/3 of of the back end framework it contains. Most people went from 4.2.2 to 4.4.

sicembaylor says:

I gave my mother my old Samsung Galaxy Tab (the original 7") running Gingerbread, so she may be the one...This is why we can't have nice things.

LightaDroid says:

Kit Kat is getting up there quick status..
Still rockin jellybean :/

jakeuten says:

it's good to see that so many people can experience the smoother android versions (KitKat and Jellybean) vs the pre-project butter versions.

Gingerbread will never go away when Walmart is selling 4 year old phones with two year contracts.

SoCalBIGmike says:

And who BUYS these?! But they do!

Us filthy peasants can't seem to avoid a good deal. Then again, Moto G did set the bar pretty high for cheapo phones.
