It has been a while since Google launched Android KitKat. Latest figures from Google Android Dashboard reveal that Jelly Bean continues to be the most popular Android flavor, commanding 60% market share, while KitKat has reached only 1.4% devices so far.

Every time Google crunches the latest numbers for the Android market, it is hard to miss one glaring constant: the fact that the Android market is fairly fragmented and continues to remain so. For instance, a fairly old version of Android, Gingerbread, still runs on some 21.2% of all Android devices.

Ice Cream Sandwich, which was the successor to Gingerbread, still has 16.9% of the market share. However, it would appear that Android vendors and users are catching up fast, with Jelly Bean registering a growth from 54.5% to 59.1% within the last one month.

KitKat, meanwhile, is a relatively new Android version and it is understandable that its adoption is quite slow. Back in November, KitKat was installed on 1.1% of the Android devices. Fresh statistics peg this number at 1.4%. Compared to other platforms such as iOS, adoption of Google’s latest Android version is very sluggish. Apple‘s iOS 7, for instance, which was released only a while ago has already been installed on 78% of all iOS devices.

However, it is somewhat unfair to compare Android with iOS in terms of the adoption of their latest versions. Android, as stated above, is a very fragmented market with multiple hardware vendors. Each of these vendors is offering multiple Android handsets, each with varied specifications and running one of the many Android versions. So the adoption of the latest Android versions is not exactly a rapid process.
