Nearly Two Thirds of Android Users on 2.1 or Above

The now familiar Platform Version Chart has been updated at the Android Developers site, and for the period ending August 2, it shows nearly 2/3 of users on 2.1 or 2.2. Android 2.1 accounts for 59.7%, and 2.2 for 4.5%. Together, that’s 64.2%.

With the rash of Froyo updates going out now, the 2.2 slice is likely to get a lot bigger soon, but it will mostly be eating away at 2.1′s share in the near term. We’ll also likely see the steady decline of 1.5 and 1.6 continue.
