Android Developers Blog had released a new snapshot of the Android version cake for 1st September. Today the latest Android 2.2 Froyo had taken a bigger slice than ever at 28.7% which holds the number 2 spot after Android 2.1 Eclair of 41.7%. Previously Android 2.1 dominated more than half of all Android devices out there.
As expected with new Android 2.2 updates, and new devices with Froyo installed, it is no surprise this latest version is gaining traction quickly. The older Android 1.5 and 1.6 versions are shrinking with 12.0% and 17.5% respectively. However we don’t expect them to die off dramatically anytime soon thanks to the likes of Sony Ericsson and Dell that are still clinging onto legacy versions.
