Majority of Android Devices Still Running on Froyo Reveals Google

A massive majority of Android devices are still running Android 2.2 Froyo but Gingerbread’s share is slowly swelling.

According to the data provided by Google on its Android developers website, 45.3 percent of Android based devices are still running on Android 2.2 Froyo, despite the fact Google dished out Gingerbread in December last year.

The initial version of Android 2.3 and 2.3.2 Gingerbread has been found running on 0.5 percent of Android devices while the newer Android 2.3.3 is running on 38.2 percent Android based devices.

Surprisingly, around 11 percent of Android devices are still running on Android 2.1 Eclair while Android 1.5 Cupcake and Android 1.6 Donut are found on 1.1 percent and 1.4 percent of the Android devices.

Google’s Android Honeycomb, designed from scratch for tablet devices, is yet to take huge strides in tablet operating system market share. The Android Honeycomb version 3.0 is running on 0.2 percent of tablets while Android 3.1 is found on 0.9 percent of devices. Android 3.2 Honeycomb is running on 0.7 percent of tablets, Google informed.
