Android Team Updates Platform Versions, Adds Historical Data

The official Android Developers Dashboard has been updated today with new data as well as historical information to aid developers.  Not only do we get to see how each platform stacks up in the Android legacy pie, but now we can find historical distribution for each release.  How fast has Android 2.0 grown?  Now you can see it in a pretty graph!  It’s worth noting that this time around, pre-Cupcake versions (1.0 and 1.1 ) are lumped together as other and are qualified as “obsolete”.   Android 2.2 “Froyo” now accounts for 1.8 percent of the distribution whereas last time it didn’t exist.  Android 2.1 is now sitting at a majority 53 percent as 1.5/1.6 flavors dwindle a touch.  Things should change a touch once Motorola pushes out 2.1 to the Cliq and Cliq XT.
