Android Figures

Froyo now on 66pc of Android devices; Honeycomb on 0.3pc

According to the latest Android platform figures from Google, Android 2.2 ‘FroYo’ is now on over 65% of the total Android devices, while Android 2.1 aka Éclair is still present on 25% of the phones.

Gingerbread is limited to just 4% of the total market because the delay by device vendors in pushing the updates. First Gingerbread devices have just start reaching market from the likes of HTC, while Samsung is still waiting for release a Gingerbread phone apart from Nexus S.

Motorola is totally absent from the scene, no Gingerbread device till now, and its track record with updates is worse than none. Sony Ericsson is the only vendor with two Android 2.3 devices in the market, and third is waiting to be launched, but the Earthquake in Japan has created some supply issues.

Coming to Honeycomb, its platform share hasn’t crossed even 1% and is just 0.3%. We are hoping that the recent tablet launches by Acer and Asus will help improve this figure. Samsung is again waiting for production of their Honeycomb tablets.[table id=14 /]

  1. Hi Gaurav,
    I had recently ordered a LG Optimus One from an online shopping website.
    When it was delivered, I noticed that by mistake they had delivered LG Optimus One ICC Cricket World Cup 2011 Collectors Edition phone. I didn’t mind because I knew that it was the same phone just with a World Cup label on the back cover (now that India has won the world cup, this is of even more sense!!) and the MRP of this model was actually higher than the one I originally ordered.
    My only doubt was that will this phone also get official gingerbread update from LG since the company has already announced that it will update the Optimus One P500 to Android 2.3.
