Froyo on 28% of Android Devices; 2.x Over 70%

The Android Platform Versions page has been updated yet again, only this time, Froyo (Android 2.2) is holding a large 28.7% slice of the pie. Granted, Eclair (Android 2.1) still clings to a decent lead with 41.7%, but Froyo is creeping up there. Following Froyo is Donut (1.6), with 17.5%, as Cupcake (1.5) rounds out the pack with a mere 12%. This is a huge change compared to a month ago, when Froyo only had 4.5% and Eclair led the pack with a commanding 59.7%.

So, what exactly does this mean? Well, it means that Froyo is on the rise, and with new Froyo updates being pushed out every other week, it shouldn’t be surprising when (yes, I said when, not if) Froyo overtakes Eclair in the Platform Versions chart. It also means that taken together, Android versions above 2.0 account for more than 70% of active devices!

  • Good news!

    When is it time for the galaxy s phones to get it. I don’t care if verizon is going to get it on there’s. They are money grubbing d bags.

    So, I would hope that all of the good developers out there (of course, including Google itself) soon will make apps that can be moved to the SD?!?

  • And here I’d just like to inject a big “[FORNICATE] YOU, MOTOROLA!

    I suspect a majority of the devices still stagnating on 1.5 belong to poor fools like myself who paid for a Motorola Android phone outside of Verizon. I don’t think Motorola “gets” that ability to upgrade the phone is one of the expected features.

    Glad to see the fossilized corporate approach doesn’t infect most other manufacturers, judging by the rise of 2.1/2.2.
