Gingerbread now on more than 50 percent of Android devices

The latest platform figures are out, and as expected, Gingerbread leads the pack. Gingerbread is now on more than 50 percent of Android devices while Android 4.0 is as absent as an official Verizon Galaxy Nexus release date. Froyo continues to decline but still remains second in command with a 35.3 percent stake. Surprisingly there are still .8 percent of devices that simply refuse to die and continue to run Android 1.5.

These numbers help developers make decisions about which OS versions to support and reflect the number of Android devices that have accessed the Android Market within a 14-day period usually ending on the 1st. What I want really want to know is — where are the last of the Cupcakehicans? Come on, don’t be shy, give a proud shout out in the comments!

      I have an Infuse still running Froyo. Got a GS2 and it will probably have ICS before the Infurse gets Gingerbread!

    How many are running a good version of Gingerbread?  I experienced as many new problems with the upgrade from Froyo as Gingerbread fixed.
