It’s December 1st and Google’s ready to serve up some new platform distribution numbers. Last time, we saw Android 2.0+ taking up a majority of the pie at 77% (Eclair with about 41% and Froyo with 36%), while 1.5 and 1.6 were still lingering around. This time, Froyo’s taken over the top spot with 43% while Eclair drops to 39.6% for a combined 82.6%. As for Cupcake and Donut, they’re still taking up 6.3% and 10.6%, respectively, which – combined – accounts for nearly 17%. The trend has been out with the old and in with the new – as it should be – but once 1.x is fully antiquated we’ll be wondering why everyone isn’t on 2.2, 2.3, and eventually, 3.0.
