Eclair Now Holds 55% of Android Pie
Bit of interesting news from the Android Platforms website. It appears the Android Platform page has been updated, and Eclair (Android 2.1) is now in the majority, with 55.5% of the pie. Woo-hoo! Donut (aka 1.6) is barely holding on to a second place spot with 22.1% and Cupcake (1.5) comes in close behind with 18.9%. Android 2.2 (Froyo) rounds out the chart at 4th place, holding only a 3.3% margin.
Overall, we still have fragmentation(or legacy as they call it), but Android 2.1 is shaping up to be the platform starting point for developers and hopefully that will lead to much better apps.
At least Eclair for everyone by the end of the year? Let’s hope so.
