Latest Android Version Numbers Still Have Froyo At The Top But Gingerbread Is Gaining



Google has released the latest results in the version number of Android that people are currently using via the Android Developers blog.  Like the previous results it still shows Android 2.2 (Froyo) ahead of all other versions of Android but Gingerbread is gaining fast.

With many OEM’s updating their devices that rolled out with Android 2.2 Froyo to Android 2.3 Gingerbread, Gingerbread has seen an increase to 38.7 percent of the pie.  Froyo has seen a decline to 45.3 percent of the pie.

What’s disturbing is the amount of Honeycomb showing up. As you can see the numbers for all versions of Android 3.x are significantly low.  Android tablets seem to be having a hard time getting adopted in the market place. Hopefully this holiday season and this unexpected gigantic commitment from Adobe will fuel some growth in the Android tablet arena.

As Phandroid said,the great thing about this current graph is that nearly 98% of all Android devices are on a version higher than 2.x . The data is measured by the amount of Android devices that access the Android Market in a 14 day period ending on October 3, 2011
