Google has just released the latest set of Android version numbers, and the overall trend of legacy version numbers dropping continues. There's no drastic changes, but a quick look at the chart above lets us see that numbers for Donut and Cupcake are now in the "also ran" category with each under two percent, and Eclair is steadily dropping compared to last month. Froyo (Android 2.2) still leads the pack with over 50 percent of all devices using the Android Market running it, but we see a nice boost in the number of phones running gingerbread, with numbers for Android 2.3 climbing over six percentage points. With Gingerbread updates rolling out or in the works for the Dinc, Droid 2, Droid X, and more, we expect another significant increase next month.
Interestingly, Honeycomb growth seems to have stalled with a measly 0.1 percent increase since August. It looks like most folks buying into the Android eco-system today prefer it on their smartphones. We expect that number will change this holiday season.
