Android Versions for Aug. 2, 2010

It's been a couple more weeks, and that means it's time once again to check out the Android fragmentation (erm, legacy) score sheet. For the past two weeks ending Aug. 2, devices running Android 2.1 are at 59.7 percent (up from 55.5 percent), and Froyo devices are now at 4.5 percent (up from 3.3).  Check out the previous report here.

It'll be interesting to see these numbers in a couple more weeks, now that the Evo 4G is getting Froyo, and we expect the original Motorola Droid to get it any day now. [Android Developers Blog]

You say fragmentation as if it were a bad thing. Any good developer should know how to write his applications to be runnable on a plethora of devices. A post was written about this a while back on Google's Android Dev blog:

And as this creeps ever upward, I predict the Android users wanting Iphones as posted in the story yesterday shrinks smaller and smaller.

A lot of these hold outs lingering on 1.5 and 1.6 are devices early to the android OS, before Google served notice they were not developing android to rule the low end devices.

next time over 10% will have 2.2 my guess 11.3%

DNicolasL says:

Its good to see 1.5 shrink while 2.1 and 2.2 grow. I'm guessing next time 1.5 will be down to 11-12%

drafo says:

Next time 2.2 should be huge (at the expense of 2.1) due to the EVO update. I'm predicting 13%.

The horde grows stronger which each passing day...

oh im pretty sure that the cliq and cliq XT make up at least 7% of that 15.3% with 1.5. The G1 probably the other 8%
