Platform Versions Chart Updated, Gingerbread Gaining Ground

It’s that time again! The Platform Versions chart has been updated, and the numbers look promising. As you can see, Froyo still holds a slight lead as the most used OS version, with Gingerbread coming in at a close second. Let’s break down the numbers, shall we?

Froyo remains in the lead with 45.3%, and Gingerbread has gained some since the last update, with 38.7%. Eclair (Android 2.1, for those of you who can’t remember back that far) continues its slow descent at 11.7%. Donut is next, with a measly 1.4%, and Cupcake rounds out the chart, coming in at just 1.1%. It’s worth noting that all three versions of Honeycomb (3.0, 3.1, and 3.2) only have a combined share of 1.8%, despite the multitude of Honeycomb tablets announced in the last month or so. It just goes to show how big the Android tablet market really is, I suppose.

The big story here is that Gingerbread should be the leading OS version by this time next month, if the chart above is any indication. So, what Android version are you running? Drop a comment below!
