Most Android Devices Now Running Gingerbread
Android 2.2 Froyo is still on 35.3% of Android phones as there are 50.6 percent of Android devices are running version 2.3, Gingerbread, the majority of which are on Android 2.3.3 or higher, according to stats posted on Google's developer site.
That's a switch from October, however, when 45.3 percent of Android devices were running Froyo and 38.2 percent were running Gingerbread.
About 9.6 percent of Android devices are running Android 2.1 Eclair, 1.3 percent have Android 1.6 Donut, and 0.8 percent have the first iteration of the mobile platform, Android 1.5 Cupcake.
Android 3.0 Honeycomb, an OS which designed for tablets which is intended only for tablets, has about 2.4 percent of the Android market, with most (1.2 percent) on Android 3.2.
The most-recent version of the OS, Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich, has come out with Galaxy Nexus. Google had released the open source for Android 4.0 in Nov. 2011. We believe that ICS will also take a place in various mobile operation platforms.
