Froyo, Eclair continue their dominance

It's been another month, and that means it's time to take another look at the breakdown of Android versions in the wild. (Click here to see October's numbers.) Android 2.1 (Eclair) and 2.2 (Froyo) still dominate, at 40.8 percent and 36.2 percent, respectively. Actually, Eclair devices ticked up a tad from 40.4 percent a month ago. Donut (Android 1.6) devices fell to an even 15 percent, and Android 1.5 (Cupcake) is down to 7.9 percent.

How do our numbers look? Out of all the visits to Android Central in October from an Android phone, 58.67 percent of them were on Android 2.2, 27.51 were from Android 2.1, and then there's everybody else -- plus a smattering of Android 2.3 and Android 3.0.1 pings.

We're all expecting the announcement of Gingerbread any day now, so next month's chart may have an entirely different feel to it. [Android Developer site]
