New Android Fragmentation/Legacy Chart Shows 50% Running 2.1

Our favorite pie chart has made another appearance over at Google’s Android Developer site. As you can see, 50% of Android devices are now running 2.1, up from the last projection of about 45%.  This is most likely reflected by all the handsets we have seen get an update, and perhaps the fact that rooted G1′s have gotten the 2.1 update thanks to Cyanogen and his magic.

It will be interesting to see what the numbers do in the coming summer months as we are going to see more handsets (Cliq, Cliq XT) upgraded to 2.1 as well as a bunch of handsets and tablets scheduled to launch with 1.6 installed.  Of course, when Froyo officially drops here in the US, it should add at least a small 2.2 slice to the pie. Notice this pie chart doesn’t have 2.2 listed even though there is an official build floating around out there.

What flavor of our favorite droid are you running?
