Does anyone have any idea what the version statistics are for New Zealand? - Similar to the breakdown google provide but localised (

Specifically I'm interested in knowing what percentage of phones are still not on Android 4 as need to determine whether to support these devices for an app we're building.

When you say 4 do you mean 4.0?  Current version is 4.4 so many phones will be on 4.  I would suspect their is a proliferation of cheaper devices from a year or two back on 2.x versions

I would've thought these numbers were fairly representative for NZ too

I mean 4 or greater (so including 4.4).

I think you're right that they're similar - The only relevant NZ info I've found is the Trade Me browser stats from May which break down by Android have 2.3 & below at around 12%

I think those trademe stats are about as good as you will do for an official NZ only count
looks like android 2 is down to 6% as of June and android 3 is .2%
