Android 4.x reaches 10.9 percent device share It may have taken over 8 months, but it appears that Android 4.x has reached a new, significant milestone, 10 percent device share.
Google gets the numbers from the amount of devices that access the Google Play Store so there is of course some small margin for error there, but the number is significant as Google hopes to move Android away from crippling fragmentation.

At 10.9 percent, the figure is double last month's figure, and can almost certainly be attributed to the Galaxy S III and HTC One X, popular devices released in the time frame.

Gingerbread (2.3) fell from 65 percent to 64 percent, the first time the OS version has ever seen a drop.

2.2 and lower still accounted for 22 percent despite drops in support.
