Froyo 2.2 now on 28 percent of Android devices According to the latest figures from Android Developers, 2.2 Froyo has quickly taken a large chunk of the distribution of Android devices.
While still in the clear lead, Android 2.1 has fallen to 41.7 percent of the distribution, while 2.2 has jumped to 28.7 percent.

The strong jump is thanks to the release of the Droid 2, and updates to the EVO 4G, Moto Droid and HTC Incredible.

Surprisingly, however, Android 1.5 devices still account for 12 percent and 1.6 devices account for another 17.5 percent.

Google is expected to release Android 3.0 (Gingerbread) by the end of the year.

Figures...the worst version has the highest adoption rate, while the second best version is somewhere around 0%.

Yeah i think the main reason for that is due to older devices that wont get the 2.2 ota, however im betting probably half the people running 1.5 or 1.6 will use a hacked rom and get 2.2 other ways, which really is never considered in these figures.

Ok the effect wont be massive but still.

Obviously hacked roms don't figure into these numbers; many people are still using cooked 2.0.1 roms...but that does not help the average end user who thinks that "Root" is the part of "Tree" that is underground.
