Google have gone and released the newest set off figures and results of the Android platform version numbers, It’s promising as well because they show that Gingerbread is on the rise by quite a bit.
The breakdown of the results shown in the picture are ones that are based on the number of Android devices that have accessed Android Market within a 14-day period ending on the data collection date noted below.
Gingerbread has jumped almost 8% and it’s all come from upgrades from the previous Android version Froyo. All this is great news as it shows that vendors are getting upgrades pushed out at a better rate than before, don’t forget this improves bugs, security holes and features that brings users a better Android experience.
The older Android versions 1.5 and 1.6 are still with a small percentage around the 2.5 mark and that will surely fade soon even more. Android 2.1 has also fallen to 11.7% and that’s expected with quite a fair few Froyo updates pushing out.
The Android tablet platform Honeycomb as risen slightly by 0.4% which isn’t much and with Ice Cream Sandwich around the corner it may not rise much more either.
97.5% of Android users are on the version 2.x platform and that is a positive one, it’s where the features, support and base is for users to experience Android to a high degree.
