Target stores are switching from iOS to Android sales floor devices

Wednesday, September 13th, 2017

If you've spent any amount of time in one of Target's 1,800 US stores, it's likely you've seen an employee using a dressed-up iPod Touch to look up stock info. it's been that way since 2014, but the retailer is now switching to Android for all its essential sales floor activities. These aren't any devices you've ever seen, though. Target is using an enterprise-oriented Zebra TC51.

Target's old Apple handhelds (known as a MyDevice) were just iPod Touches inside a red plastic shell (see below).

Android platform distribution updated for September 2017 with another small gain for Nougat and no sign of Oreo

Tuesday, September 12th, 2017

There's an Apple event happening at this moment, during which the company will probably brag about how unified its iOS user base it. Google chose right now to update the platform versions in the developer dashboard. Android is, well, not entirely unified, but that's nothing new. Nougat is still gaining this month, Marshmallow is on the decline, and there's no sign of Oreo yet.

Here's the breakdown of this month's changes.

Android platform distribution for August 2017: Nougat hits 13.5% with Android O right around the corner

Wednesday, August 9th, 2017

Google has updated the developer dashboards for August, and that means a new glimpse at which versions of Android are floating around out there. Like last month, Android 7.0 and 7.1 saw a small gain, and most other versions saw a small drop. That leaves Nougat on just 13.5% of devices today, and it's entirely possible Android O will arrive before another platform update does.

Android 7.0 is by far the largest version of Nougat, which is what's running on devices like the Galaxy S8.

Play Games v5.2 adds several notification channels, adaptive icons, and support for app data backup [APK Download]

We don't hear too much about Play Games anymore, which may seem pretty obvious since the updates have been very slow lately and Google recently announced plans to shutter some of the features that weren't seeing much adoption. However, a new version began rolling out today, and it makes a surprisingly large jump straight from v3.9 to v5.2. Don't get too excited for big changes, though; this update appears to be focused on upkeep and incorporating some of the features added with Android Marshmallow and Nougat, not any major new additions.

Android platform distribution numbers for July 2017 show another modest increase for Nougat

Friday, July 7th, 2017

Google has provided updated numbers on what versions of Android are out there in the world, and again Nougat is showing a respectable, though not impressive rise. The increase across both versions is 2.0%, which is a bit weaker than last month's 2.4% rise. Some older versions of Android saw larger than expected decreases, but Nougat has still fallen behind the pace set by Marshmallow last year.

Nougat is now running on 11.5% of the Android devices out there.

With another month of Android version stats released, Google's latest version of its mobile operating system saw predictable gains, ticking up a total of 2.4 points versus a little over a month ago. All other versions of the platform either held steady or declined, with Android 5.1 and 4.4 seeing the largest losses, at 0.7 points each.

Android Gingerbread, Jelly Bean, and KitKat also saw minor drops, thought Marshmallow held steady at 31.2% of the pie.

May 2017 Android platform distribution shows another big gain for Nougat and a small uptick for older versions

Tuesday, May 2nd, 2017

Google has updated the developer dashboard for May, giving us an overview of the Android device ecosystem. Nougat continues to inch upward at a respectable rate—it's now over 7% of devices. However, there's some strange stuff at the bottom of the heap. Gingerbread and Lollipop both saw small increases in usage share this month because math is weird.

Here's an update comparison chart with this month's values.
