Android in Dec 2010: 51.8% of all droids now run Froyo
One of every two Android smartphones out there now runs the version 2.2 of the operating system. And while Froyo already accounts for 51.8% of all droids, 2.3 Gingerbread has the miniscule market share of 0.4%.
Of course, we should have in mind that the statistics are based on data collected in the two weeks ending on 4 January. At that time there was only one handset running Gingerbread available (the Nexus S) and it has only been selling for a few weeks in just a couple of countries. We are expecting this percentage to increase rapidly as the reach of Android 2.3 extends over the coming weeks.
The 8.4% percent of market share that Froyo gained over the past month are mostly at the expense of Android 2.1 Eclair, which slipped 4.4% compared to last month and now runs on 35.2% of all droids.
Android 1.5 Cupcake and 1.6 Donut took another step towards oblivion as their respective market shares dropped to 4.7% (from 6.3% in November) and 7.9% (10.6% in November). At that rate those two will be practically extinct by the end of March.
Just hit XDA guys. Running my X10 with froyo right, its boss.

I dont think so... Since that X10 wont have its Froyo, the chances for X8 to have its Froyo is so tiny.
