Android 1.5 Still Biggest Slice of Fragmentation Pie

The latest figures are in from the Android Developers blog showing the relative number of active devices using the various flavors of Android.  This is basically a chart that shows what handsets are currently active and looking for apps.  Somewhat surprisingly, Android 1.5 still commands the biggest piece of the pie with 37% of the market.  Second place is Android 2.1 with 32.4% share and 1.6 rounds things out at 29.4% of the handset mix.   Look for these numbers to drastically change now that the Droid Incredible is out and handsets start making the jump from 1.5 to 2.1 (Eclair).  Of course, things could start all over should 2.2 drop this summer.
