Google has just released the latest numbers regarding who's using what version of Android. These are devices that have accessed the Android Market over two weeks ending Feb. 1. The long and short of it is this:
- Ice Cream Sandwich is up to a whopping 1 percent of all devices. That's the Galaxy Nexus, of course.
- Honeycomb (Android 3.0) is still around, hitting 3.4 percent of devices in the past two weeks, up a percentage point from a month ago.
- Gingerbread (Android 2.3) is at 58.6 percent, up from 55.5 percent last month.
- Froyo (Android 2.2) fell three percentage points to 27.8 percent.
- Eclair is hanging on at 7.6 percent, down from 8.5 percent last month.
