55.5 percent of Android phones now running 2.1 Eclair Google has said today that 55.5 percent of all Android smartphones are now running 2.1 Eclair.
22.1 percent of Android users are still running 1.6 Donut and 18.9 percent are still using a variant of 1.5 Cupcake.

The numbers are moving quickly, however, as in May in the figures were 37.2 percent for 2.1, 28 percent for 1.6, and a huge 34.1 percent for 1.5.

Although it has not officially released the latest software update, 2.2 Froyo, to any device besides the Nexus One, Google says 3.3 percent of all handsets are running the advanced update, likely meaning a decent portion of Droid, Incredible, EVO 4G and other owners are running rooted devices with Froyo.

Froyo has been promised, officially, for the above mentioned devices, and others like the MyTouch 3G Slide and Samsung Galaxy S by the end of the year.

I was runnin' Froyo on my Vogue but I went back to Donut because it still needs a lot of development for it to run as fast and flawless as Donut... Speed is already pretty close though, and that's with more visuals and such, so I can't wait for it to become more stable :)

Eclair was far too slow for me, looks much nicer though with the HTC Sense.
