73.8 percent of Android phones now running 2.1 or 2.2 Google's dashboard service has made it clear this week that almost three-quarters of all Android devices now run either versions 2.1 or 2.2, the latest updates to the popular mobile operating system.
In April, that number was just around 25 percent.

Android 2.2 adoption has jumped to about 30 percent, with the remaining 43.8 percent going to Android 2.1.

Around 10 percent of Android smartphone owners are still running the terribly outdated 1.5 with another 15 percent running the equally as outdated 1.6.

The strong adoption rate for 2.1 and 2.2 comes right as Android 3.0 Gingerbread prepares for its eventual launch by the end of the year.

Besides adding new features, Gingerbread should focus on improving the user experience and interface.
