It was brought to our attention that haven’t taken a look at the Android Platform Versions pie chart in a good while, so seeing as Gingerbread is on the scene and has had some time to settle, here it is. While we can still number the total versions of Android represented at five, the good news is that the iteration holding the largest piece of the pie, Froyo, now sits at just over 50 percent. Android 2.2 is on 51.8 percent of devices, while the closest follower, Android 2.1, takes up 35.2 percent of the total. Android 2.1 is no doubt sticking around in large part thank to the numerous Galaxy S devices still running that version of Android; once they receive their update that slice of the pie should surely shrink. A look at the historical distribution shows Froyo’s rise to power:
Gingerbread is present for the first time, but Android 2.3 holds only a tiny portion of the total with 0.4 percent. That is to be expected given that only one phone currently runs the latest version of Android, but we expect to see that number to gradually rise just in time for Ice Cream Sandwich.
