Froyo (Android 2.2) is the most popularly used Android version!

Just after 9 months of its release, Froyo (Android 2.2) is the most widely used Android version in all of the Android devices. This version of the Android OS is popularly used in both mobile devices and in tablets.

When  combined with the Android version 2.1, the overall popularity of the 2.x version swells to 90% on all the active Google devices.

The disappointing part of this statistic is that the most recent version for mobile phones – Gingerbread has not even reached 2% in terms of usage. Also the honeycomb version which was exclusively developed for tablets is just 0.2% in use.

Android Version Usage
1.5 3 %
1.6 4.8 %
2.1 29 %
2.2 61.3 %
2.3 0.7 %
2.3.3 1.0 %
3.0 0.2 %

Though the popularity of Android is steadily climbing up in the market, the users would love to see that the most recent versions are also the most widely used versions in market.


Do you own an android? What version are you running?

Quite to be expected. It's unfortunate however since most people are not and will not be running 2.3, which means they will be exposed to any issues that have actually been patched in newer versions.
